The ABC of academic discourse

Andy Powell picks up on the debate about blogging and academic discourse. Very relevant at the moment with respect to the research course we are running (H809) where the students are using blogs to reflect on readings and discuss things! I like his reordering of my suggestion for the role of blogging into a simple ABC:  A-academic paper, ailment B-blogging, C-conferences!! Soooo challenge for you… what about academic discourse D-Z???? ;-)
