On being a Blogademic
As promised, here’s the article I recently published that we were discussing earlier (and if you’re a Thought & Action reader just joining us, welcome). I am not unaware of the irony of an article about the internet age having to be scanned from paper and converted into a .pdf in order to appear online. But such is the life lived in the transition between paper and pixels, I suppose, and since a version of that inbetweenness is one main point of the article, perhaps this copier flecked, whopperjawed, low-tech scan is not just ironic, but a little fitting.
Anyway, the usual disclaimers about tuning your ear to the academic frequency and remembering that we get paid by the syllable etc all apply. I always try to pass along copies of my articles to people who show up in the acknowledgments, and this case, that means you. Thanks again. And Happy New Year.
Update: Here’s a much cleaner copy of the essay that’s now available on the journal’s website.Email this Post
