    1. This is an interesting concept to be sure. It seems sort of odd that it's an explicitly organized thing though given that there's (used to be?) a less organized, but bigger distributed blogosphere.

      I suppose this version helps to focus multiple people on specific ideas and work that might otherwise occur.

      I recognized most of the bookmarked material and writers mentioned here. One or two may be worth revisiting.

    1. Vaya este esfuerzo

      Creo que de las cosas que más se necsita ahora es el desarrollo del pensamiento crítico y escribir me parece que es una forma de hacerlo, compartirlo también lo hace, porque te enfrenta a la opinión de otros. Amartya Sen dice que la libertad de expresión fortalece las democracias y supongo que entre más voces existan, más fortaleceremos nuestras democracias. Ray Bradbury aconsejaba escribir mínimo mil palabras diarias y él lo hizo desde los 12 años. Yo trato de seguirle el ritmo (aunque seguro estaré muy lejos) pero con el tiempo empiezas a ver que deja de ser un esfuerzo y empieza a fluir naturalmente. Es como con estas tradiciones orientales como el Tao: no te esfuerces. No quiere decir que no lo hagas, que te rindas a la pereza, sino que (y viene un ejemplo que se me hace muy latinoamericano) cuando uno baila no está pensando que tienes que dar un paso y hacer un movimiento y así te estás esforzando. Cuando las cosas empiezan a fluir, cuando no lo piensas sino que sólo suceden, ya no te estás esforzando.

      Pero eso supongo que sólo viene del hábito.

    2. Poder dejar algo que sirva a otras personas y quizás tener una respuesta del otro lado del cable.

      A veces la respuesta no llega, pero eso no debería desanimarnos. La inmediatez de la transparencia, como dice un amigo surcoreano que tenemos en común, nos ha acostumbrado a que si no hay respuesta inmediata, es porque nunca llegará. Pienso que puede ser que tengas respuesta o resuenes en un lugar lejano del tiempo, que es lo que pienso cuando leo tantos libros que me han influenciado y muchos de gente que ya ha muerto. Tal vez la conversación se de, pero supongo que como bibliotecarios deberíamos pensar en términos de milenios, no en segundos.

    3. Hace años pienso en escribir.

      Para mi resulta una necesidad, como respirar. Pienso más cuando escribo que cuando pienso y me gusta pensar. Como te decía por otros medios creo que escribimos bastante, pero en lugares dispersos. A mi me ha preocupado eso de compilar las ideas que nos van llegando y vamos desarrollando. Ando esperando que un colega habilite mi nuevo pedacito de tierra digital y ya retomaré lo mío.

      Qué bien que te animes y ojalá que sea un hábito.

    1. This quote from Richard Feynman is at the top of my blog’s landing page: I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.

      Inspiration to maintain a research blog

    2. Blogging has taught me how to read a paper because explaining something is a more active form of understanding. Now I summarize the main contribution in my own words, write out the notation and problem setup, define terms, and rederive the main equations or results. This process mimics the act of presenting and is great practice for it.

      Why teaching others/blogging has a great value in terms of learning new topics

    1. To top it off if I would add a racial slurs and inform them that they did not belong on the earth once in a while just for my own satisfaction

      Dehumanization research suggests that when people see others as less than human, empathy centers in the brain deactivate. For example, people who commit mass violence, cruelty, or hate crimes often rationalize these actions by comparing the victims to animals.

    1. Supplementary data

      Of special interest is that a reviewer openly discussed in blog his general thoughts about the state of the art in the field based on what he had been looking at in the paper. This blog came out just after he completed his 1st round review, and before an editorial decision was made.


      This spawned additional blogs that broadened the discussion among the community-- again looking toward the future.<br> See: https://www.homolog.us/blogs/genome/2013/02/23/titus-browns-thoughts-on-the-assemblathon-2-paper/



      Further the authors, now in the process of revising their manuscript, joined in on twitter, reaching out to the community at large for suggestions on revisions, and additional thoughts. Their paper had been posted in arxiv- allowing for this type of commenting and author/reader interaction See: https://arxiv.org/abs/1301.5406

      The Assemblathon.org site collected and presented all the information on the discussion surrounding this article. https://assemblathon.org/page/2

      A blog by the editors followed all this describing this ultra-open peer review, highlighting how these forms of discussions during the peer review process ended up being a very forward-looking discussion about the state of based on what the reviewers were seeing in this paper, and the directions the community should now focus on. This broader open discussion and its very positive nature could only happen in an open, transparent, review process. See: https://blogs.biomedcentral.com/bmcblog/2013/07/23/ultra-open-peer-review/

    1. Also been thinking about this for a while, but generally most of the so-called platforms aren't pushing a particular message, but are simply pushing the most acceleratable messages, regardless of their content, so that they can leverage the advertising perspective.

      The Russian government apparently leveraged this to cause issues in the 2016 election and in that case they did have a specific message.

      Rather, we ought to take away the rapid fire and reach portions of these tools which give far too much power to people who don't know how to wield it or aren't responsible enough.

      I should expound on all of these more in the future.

    1. One of the jewels in the crown of the National Library of Russia is the Voltaire Library.

      When I saw it I can't believe it. There are many books and I like Voltaire's ideas. After I read Treatise on Tolerance I created the Spanish article in Wikipedia and I was surprised that no one created it before. It makes me think we are not reading him and his ideas, have value more than never.

      I have very good memories of the libraries in St Petersburg, and I spent many days in the reading room of the building in Nevsky Prospect.

      Thanks for write and share your impression, Christine.

    1. I want to do what...

      Really cool way to filter posts by using a common language sentence. I want to. . . teach. . . in blended mode. . .etc

    1. This is associated with the e-learning development tool "Articulate Storyline." There are frequent blog posts and they are not limited to or exclusive to the Articulate products. Posts are brief and not all of the content will be new, but there are worthwhile tips to be had and they combine theory (not to the extent that an academic would) with practice. rating 3/5

    1. Participate in eLearning Learning

      This page is set up like a Pinterest page. There are changing (not necessarily completely current) articles on various aspects of e-learning for adults. The page is laid out in a sufficiently attractive manner and the page seems relevant to those who are training adult learners. This is not the best site to visit if one has a specific need in mind but could be used well by someone who has a few minutes and wants to browse. Rating 3/5

    1. What social media did was to transform discovery into a passive rather than an active process.

      Nicely put observation on how social media changed the way in which we discover information.

    1. in-class reading of Chee’s “The Writing Life” and blog response

      Chee summarizes what he’s learned about writing through his experiences in school and the mentorship of writer Annie Dillard. Specifically, he learns: the value of his perspective, writing makes possibility, talent is nothing without work, we get to where we aim to be. For your first post, consider one of his lessons in your own writing life. When did you learn this lesson? How did you learn it? On the flip side, you might want to challenge a lesson he talks about and explain how/why it isn’t true.

    1. Máire Ní Mhongáin

      As Ciarán Ó Con Cheanainn writes in Leabhar Mór na nAmhrán, the oldest written version of this song dates to 1814, and is found in MS Egerton 117 in the British Library. Oral lore in Conneamara has it that Máire Ní Mhongáin’s three sons joined the British Army, and that Peadar deserted soon after joining, and emigrated to America. It seems probable that their involvement was in the French Revolutionary Wars or the Napoleonic Wars, the major conflicts fought by the British Army in the final decade of the eighteenth century and the first decade of the nineteenth respectively.

      Máire Ní Mhongáin seems to have resonated among Irish emigrant communities in the United States. My evidence for this is that Micheál Ó Gallchobhair of Erris, County Mayo, collected songs from Erris emigrants living in Chicago in the 1930s, over a century after the occasion of ‘Amhrán Mháire Ní Mhongáin’s’ composition. It features in his collection, which you access via the following link: http://www.jstor.org.ucc.idm.oclc.org/stable/20642542?seq=2#page_scan_tab_contents

      The virulent cursing of departed sons by the mother, named Máre, produces the effect of striking g contrasts with John Millington Synge’s bereaves mother, Old Maurya, in Riders to the Sea.

      My Irish Studies blog features an in-depth account of typical features of the caoineadh genre to which Amhrán Mháire Ní Mhongáin belongs. You can access it via the following link: johnwoodssirishstudies.wordpress.com/2018/01/03/carraig-aonair-an-eighteenth-century-west-cork-poem/

      • audience consensus: little discussion necessary about whether blogs should have DOIs, concrete implementations needed
      • manual DOI registration possible, but of little use
      • API call better, but integration from blogging software necessary
      • SEO also requires exposing metadata => interests align
      • schema.org/BlogPosting suggested
      • https://blog.datacite.org/ uses JSON-LD
      • https://wordpress.org/plugins/schema/
      • sitemap needed so that indexer can find the posts to then extract metadata
      • beta testers from institutions that already register DOIs welcome
    1. So, R.I.P. The Blog, 1997-2013. But this isn’t cause for lament. The Stream might be on the wane but still it dominates. All media on the web and in mobile apps has blog DNA in it and will continue to for a long while. Over the past 16 years, the blog format has evolved, had social grafted onto it, and mutated into Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest and those new species have now taken over. No biggie, that’s how technology and culture work.

      I agree. It is not that blog is dead, or that blogging is no longer an activity worth doing outside Facebooking, Instagramming and Tweeting, or that bloggers are no longer exist. I would say that blog, blogging and blogger are expanding. They just exist in different platform (like Facebook and Pinterest), with different method (people who rant on Facebook .. isn't that blogging?) and as different people (Instagrammers, Facebookers, etc).

    1. commenting

      From one of the Disqus comments:

      Which piece did you read?

      Though seemingly innocuous, this comment gets much closer to an ad hominem attack than to a throughtful conversation. The rest of the comment is ok, but it’s with slips like these that we get into flamewars.

    1. Scott owns the blog, Amy’s a sharecropper on it.

      I've been thinking about this metaphor, and about comments on blogs vs. blogs linking to blogs. In some ways this is another part of the Wikipedia vs. Federated Wiki question. I say "vs." because the alternatives do become binary at some point in the conversation. But back to the owning vs. sharecropping: in terms of web presence, maybe; in terms of discourse and rhetoric and the ways call and response differ, maybe not. I'll keep thinking. And I'm grateful for the heads-up that Hypothes.is is at last up and running!

    1. After 2004, I believed the story that the protesters in Ukraine and elsewhere were mobilized through text messaging and blogs.

      believes the story ... it's a story he believes.

    2. We were supposed to be saving the world by helping to promote democracy, but it seemed clear to me that many people, even in countries like Belarus or Moldova, or in the Caucasus, who could have been working on interesting projects with new media on their own, would eventually be spoiled by us.

      Applies to these activities wherever undertaken, including any country in the West, he just so happens to be interested in former Soviet Block countries
