Eric Chwang (Colorado) calls to my attention this site created by his colleague Michael Huemer. It's certainly quite opinionated, but of course we like that! I think I mostly agree with what he says, though perhaps at points it's a bit too negative (e.g., is it really true that an undergrad who needs paper ideas is unlikely to become a good researcher? surely many students develop these skills over time). But without saying more about my own reactions to the advice, let me invite readers to post their reactions to Professor Huemer's advice. Signed comments will, as usual, be very strongly preferred.
