The Peek-a-Boo World of a Global Villager – The Hawk's Roost
Connects Blood, Rettberg, and McLuhan in the social media village:

> Does the disciplined approach, which blogging in its intended form is described as possessing, offer the solution to legitimizing the discussions we as a society are having. Am I wrong in sensing that social media has become plagued with a lack of ethical discourse, where important social issues are overwhelmed with copious amounts of misinformation. Where the atmosphere is clouded with an overall lack of informational credibility?

The future of blogging is blogging
An end of year comment from Martin Weller. "So, no the edublogosphere isn’t what it was. And that’s just great. Becoming a blogger is still the best academic decision I ever made.

The Garden and the Stream: A Technopastoral | Hapgood
Its about trailblazing, building the garden. Getting your mojo workin. It's a lead reading for Weblogs and Wikis because it's something no one has been talking about, much less doing.

"Everybody wants to play in the Stream, but no one wants to build the Garden."

"I’m blown away by the vision of this every time I read this. But not because this has happened, but because it *hasn’t* happened. I’m blown away because here, in 2015, there are elements to this vision that we still haven’t explored.... More than that, there’s a substance to the vision that you can’t help but long for reading it. Note that connections here aren’t banter, but the construction of a mental model of a subject area. And that model can be taken by someone else and extended, built on. Humanity can advance, not through argument by through a true collaboration."

Bad Subjects: Blogging Theory Jodi Dean
On the genre of theory blogs. Dean opens up the rhet sit of theory/academic blogging, and then places extreme comments as transgressions to further widen the conversation., with the knowledgr that academic blogging is itself transgressive. I love this stuff.

McNeill - Blogging as New Literacy Practice
Looks at some affordances in weblogs that enable "a new literacy practice characterised by what Lankshear and Knobel call an “active sociality” (2006: 1). This “active sociality” is exemplified by modes of participation and displays of identity and affiliation that mark it out as significantly different from other forms of textual communication."

Reading in the Digital Age, or, Reading How We’ve Always Read | Booksquare
Some interesting consideration of how to move the act of once-considered-private reading (annotations, notes, synopses, summaries, responses, discussions) into an online social environment. Ties to aggregate and remix in Downes's frame of a MOOC. Might be good to ease readers into PLE frames and repurposing.

I learn from it. When people are moved enough by an idea to compose the types of responses reflected in that thread, it’s pretty inspiring, and I get my own thinking pushed and stretched. Even in cases where people pretty much tell me I’m out to lunch
