Knowledge, Learning, Community

Tim Bray argues, and I agree, that the serious academic conversations today are taking place on blogs. "The quality of conversations about what matters is at an all-time high. No, not in the corridors of power. Nor, unfortunately, in the official channels for academic publishing. It's the blogs." His reasoning?

His focus is mostly on politics and economics, but my observation is that in education as well, the more leading edge, nuanced and thoughtful discourse is happening in blogs.
