What is annotation as a genre? I think what he observed in the annotations was a wide range of reader responses, some highly engaging, others less clearly so.
This question seems like it should be more specific to disciplines. What is annotation in the legal world? How about for scientists? For beginning readers?
If I'm annotating a text to make meaning, that's different than if I'm a prof annotating a historical text to provide relevant background. The two notes have only their "noteness" in common, I'd say.
