Timo Hannay of Nature Publishing Group tipped me off about this Economist article about economists blogging. I was also fascinated to listen to the Harvard Law School’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society conference about Law Professors’ blogs, called Bloggership 2006 – I listened to them as a podcast on my daily commute. I recommend these talks to anyone interested in the differences and similarities between different professional communities. Incidentally Timo is speaking at a Berkman Luncheon on October 17th so I’m interested to hear the podcast! Timo’s presentation can be viewed here. David Weinberger has provided a synopsis of Timo’s presentation here. Recommended.
