The offending article

It is simultaneously annoying and gratifying when you see in print an idea you’ve had yourself. This was my reaction in seeing, in Saturday’s NY Times (12-18-10) the following article by Patricia Cohen, Conversation Across Centuries With the Father of All Bloggers.

It was just the other day when, in my post Montaigne: the First Ascent, I announced my plan to blog both on Montaigne and the new book by Sarah Bakewell, How to Live – Or a life of Montaigne in One Question and Twenty Attempts at an Answer. Integral to my plan to was to discuss Montaigne as a blogger. I’ve thought this for quite a while, I swear I have!

So, read the article, it is unfortunately very good.
