WTF

I got up in the middle of the night, as I do every night [all us old guys do] and after eating a few grapes, checked my blog, which generally draws maybe 1000-1200 hits in twenty-four hours.  Ten thousand eight hundred and thirty seven people had visited this blog since seven p.m. last evening!  Does anyone know what on earth is going on?  It wasn't a mention by Brian Leiter -- I looked.

I feel as though I was having a nice, quiet chat with a few like-minded friends when my living-room become ground zero for a flash mob.

Prof. Wolff,

I would assume that the reason for the spike in the number of people visiting your blog, is that your post about the 25 books every grad student should read made it to the front page of reddit. I know that is the reason I am here!

Thank you. I just took a look, and I sort of think I ought to post an explanation there. Talk about one's fifteen minutes of fame!
