AECT Annual International Convention, Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT), Anaheim, California, Keynote, Oct 27, 2007.

Closing keynote for AECT in Anaheim. The purpose of this talk was to reflect on the various presentations and events at the conference and think about the major issues raised. I chose to contrast the traditional academic paper with web-enabled forms of communication like the email newsletter. I ask whether there is ‘must read’ and ‘must cite’ literature in our discipline, and further, what purpose would it serve?
