This is good because if talking with each other is difficult for the inhabitants of mount Olympus then they might spend some time talking to mere mortals and that might be a good thing.

Dan

Will you go to lunch then? I look forward to hearing what your lunch partner thought about blogging their superbusyness.

I think perhaps the mail's from the point of view of an harrassed assistant who has to juggle academic diaries all day, rather than reflecting the 'soooo busy' egoism of the professor in question. I know, I've done jobs like that, it's no fun!

David

I agree with Dan. I could see myself slipping something like that in there not as an ego-thing, but rather as a, man, why is he asking me to do this even though he (or she) has no time.

Again, I don't understand why you guys get so upset over such minor problems like busy schedules and mis-spelled names. So the guy's got a busy schedule...big deal. So do you. And his assistant probably used poor language in asking for your schedule. Why are you using it as an excuse to get peeved? Why are such great minds so darn petty sometimes?

Dominic

If the worst that happens at Harvard is 2 busy people have some trouble coordinating their schedules, it sounds like a nice place.

This is (mildly) amusing, but also probably the sort of thing that goes on all the time in certain environments. Blame it on e-mail; in the olden days someone would have had to pick up the phone and call you. More civilized etc.

This clearly reminded me once where this intern i worked with almost got fired because he called the Professor 'Doctor'.

pgl -what's the beef with accountants?

I suggest all Harvard faculty spend a month in Iraq, then when they come home they might stop bitching about how rough life.

Hello Mr.Rodrik,

I am Rex Arce, an upcoming senior from the University of the Philippines, Diliman. I've read your paper "Feasible Globalization". Will it be a problem if I ask a few things about the paper?

It was a very wide ditch, and when they
crept up to the edge and looked into it they could see it was also
very deep, and there were many big, jagged rocks at the bottom.
The sides were so steep that none of them could climb down, and
for a moment it seemed that their journey must end.

I think this is a great post. One thing that I find the most helpful is number five. Sometimes when I write, I just let the flow of the words and information come out so much that I loose the purpose. It’s only after editing when I realize what I’ve done. There’s defiantly a lot of great tips here I’m going to try to be more aware of.

We got to be extremely good when keeping eye on all these things. I trade with OctaFX broker and under them; it’s ever easy to keep tab on all these things and enhances my chances massively. I love it with the small spreads at 0.1 pips, high leverage up to 1.500 while there are over 70 instruments and much more, it’s just perfect way to work out towards making profits and allows one to be extremely comfortable and relaxed with working.
