It's not like there are so many Canadian history blogs that we can ignore the death even of an intermittent one. Acanademics went live in June 2010, with the cryptic motto "an untenured look at Canadian history; the stakes may be small but they are worth examining." It posted irregularly (and anonymously) until a summer holiday was announced on August 9.
We were beginning to think academic holidays are even longer than one imagined. Then the site went black, sometime in the last few days. Acanademics, we hardly knew ye.
And here I've been telling everyone this blogging is an easy gig. Well, there's a niche open, and a catchy title.
