THE POWER OF THE WEB: On Friday at 12:57 p.m. I put NWU legal historian Jim Lindgren’s dissection of Michael Bellesiles’ Arming America up on the site. As of 8:09 a.m. today, it’s been downloaded 27,038 times. That’s several times the circulation of the Yale Law Journal, where it originally appeared.

Lindgren’s piece is, of course, of unusual interest. But that’s still an amazing response to a law review article. I wonder if law reviews are missing out by not making their content easily available on the Web. Some do, but most don’t.
