Everyone’s excited about the new Becker-Posner weblog, myself included. It looks like we can thank Lawrence Lessig for making this happen.

This is an example of what an entry will look like. I have a link here to my blog.
Prediction: The Becker-Posner Blog will have more Bloglines subscribers before it launches than this blog has earned in eighteen months of existence.
[Update 11/30/04: That was fast! As of this morning, it’s Becker-Posner 31, Eternal Recurrence 18. The good news is my prediction was right. The bad news is there are more people reading a non-existent weblog than are reading my own. Huzzah!]
