Should Academics Talk to Katie Couric? - The Chronicle
Once more into the breech of consumption. Don't make me think! "Academic writing has the benefit of scholarly rigor, full documentation, and original thinking. But the transmission of our ideas is routinely hampered — understandably, given academe’s publication, evaluation, and tenure conditions — by a great deal of peer-oriented jargon."

Coming Down From the Clouds: On Academic Writing - The Chronicle
A defense rather than an apologia for scholarly writing. We're not writing for The General Public. We're writing on the edge of knowledge - and that requires some effort. "Yes, some academic writing is more abstruse than it needs to be. No doubt, scholarship should not be hidden behind expensive paywalls. And, yes, academics, like all people, are shaped by the conditions of their employment. ... But the story is more complicated." "there is a risk when we mistakenly assume that public and scholarly writing are the same thing — that one is good and clear and the other is needlessly complex."

Losing interest in social media: there is no there there
George Siemans placing social media (FB, Twitter, g+) in its place. Ephemeral. Distribution. Theres a place for the ephemeral, the emotive, but the considered work is foundational. I was thinking the same thing - even g+ is California - but more as a matter of pace and obligation: g+ and others demand a pace and regularity that I'm just not interested in engaging. Nor are many of my students.

"What has Twitter and Facebook done for me? Nothing, really. Other than perhaps attending to my emotive needs of being connected to people when I’m traveling and whining.
Social media=emotions.
Blogging/writing/transparent scholarship=intellect.
Put another way, Twitter/Facebook/G+ are secondary media."

Weller and Groom. State of the academy: " The uptake of new technologies in research and associated practices can be seen as a barometer for innovation within higher education. ... We suggest one possible antidote to this zombification of higher education is the use of new technologies and particularly the cultural norms they embody." Yes, and yes again. Complication arises when the local culture is a Dawn of the Dead shopping mall.

Studies Explore Whether the Internet Makes Students Better Writers - The Chronicle
Overview of recent studies and commentary on affects and position of online and extra-curricular writing. Ranges from "stylistically impoverished," to Yancey: "If we don't invite students to figure out the lessons they've learned from that writing outside of school and bring those inside of school, what will happen is only the very bright students" will do it themselves, Ms. Yancey says. "It's the rest of the population that we're worried about."
