I’d be more excited if he had started posting to Language Log, but even if we won’t be seeing flashes of linguistic brilliance, it’s still newsworthy that Noam Chomsky has started a blog. The introductory post is a little hard to decipher.
This blog will include brief comments on diverse topics of concern in our time. They will sometimes come from the ZNet sustainer forum system where Noam interacts through a forum of his own, sometimes from direct submissions, sometimes culled from mail and other outlets—always from Noam Chomsky.

I wouldn’t have guessed that Noam Chomsky calls Noam Chomsky “Noam Chomsky”, but if it’s good enough for Rickey Henderson I guess it’s good enough for the Noam.
