“Facebook for nerds”

Professors: they might or might not be on Facebook, but do you really want to go there? Instead, I present you with WorldCat Identities, a well nigh voyeuristic look at the careers of your favorite Learned Sages. (It’s in beta and you can kind of tell – not all identities are coalesced properly.) It also provides you with a sort of “tag cloud” of common threads, as well as related thinkers. Hint: if you have any older professors, try them first for a neat bar graph of publication activity. (*cough* tenure committee fodder)
