Context, Commentary, and Close Reading: What Slate’s Annotated “Bartelby” Can Tell Us About Reading and Writing with Digital Annotation
> the already-annotated text (like Kahn’s “Bartelby”) is good for some kinds of reading, but not others. Specifically, while digital annotation overcomes some of the barriers to readerly engagement with a complex text, like lack of historical knowledge and interpretive experience, it also short-circuits the kind of intensive or “close” reading traditionally valued in literary studies. But the process of annotation modeled here helps productively deconstruct the writing/reading dichotomy, at the same time activating both close and contextual reading. “Bartelby” offers a useful model for how digital annotation tools and practices can be productively used in the writing classroom.

Is “The Web As a Tool For Thought” a Gating Item? | Hapgood
> The first, biggest, and most important step is to get people to think of the web as something bigger than just conversation or expression. Once we do that, the reasons why things like annotation layers, linked data and federated wiki make sense will be come clear. Until then, we’ll stay stuck in the DMV parking lot.

Beyond Conversation - FedWiki
"In the newer style, content is kept fairly short, and fairly link-less. But at the bottom of the articles we annotate by linking to other content with short explanations of each link. ... People seeing your links can choose accept or reject them. Good and useful connections can propagate along with the page. I mentioned ages ago (was it really only November?) that as federated wiki pages move through a system they are improved, and that’s true. But the more common scenario is that as they move through a system they are connected."

As Mike suggests, it's the federation that makes this style of linking valuable, with links accruing as the article is distributed through the neighborhood. Each paragraph is a module, which effectively keeps the link outside the content, while making it possible to drop a link into the stream of an article at any point. This way of linking further distinguishes between wiki writing and, f'rinstance, blog writing. Different genres, different functions.

Wikifying Annotations
Mike imagines a world where notes and annotations are wikified and hence shareable in Pinboard. How about a link in the Pinboard note to a FedWiki page? Does that work? ( Gimme my memex! If we can't have flying cars, least we can have intertwingled tools.

Testing, Lists, the Loss of Knowledge and the Development of the Perpetual Present
Lists don't have to be reductive, (a list of 1001 solutions to poverty would not be reductive), and I wonder if it's the list itself that irks or the net genre of the list. Still, one for consideration.

Notes, Lists, and Everyday Inscriptions | The New Everyday
In this cluster of The New Everyday we examine new everyday inscriptions, both the scholarly and the utterly mundane – from the grocery list to the collaboratively organized and annotated archive. The nine essays in this cluster focus on notes both physical and virtual, found and made, formal and informal, collaboratively and individually created, means-to-ends and ends-in-themselves.
