Blog Navel Gazing

Kevin Drum, Washington Monthly, May 13, 2004
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This article looks at what blogs are good for (and they're good for a lot of things), and while the comparison is between blogs and newspaper articles, the same comparison could be made between blogs and academic writing (up to and including the stilted Victorian style in which they are written). With a newsletter like OLDaily I am able to offer a much wider range of commentary, and wear my point of view much more openly, that I could in an academic essay. Not that I would want to read (or write) nothing but blog posts. But they sure fill a large gap in traditional writing.
