WHAT?!? I... am very glad I did not see this before going to sleep last night.

Replying to @sherah1918 and @jcmeloni

Oh, that's just the icing on the cake. Hmph.

Replying to @jcmeloni

We were so in sync, on UConn women, on USC football. How could things have gone so wrong?

Wed Dec 01 13:41:34 +0000 2010

Replying to @jcmeloni

You do, indeed. I think I can forgive them; I have my own complications.

Wed Dec 01 13:48:01 +0000 2010

Replying to @jcmeloni

And at least it's not USC football. That I honestly don't think I could forgive.

I'm participating in #reverb10 this year, hoping to use the reflection to sort out some of my thinking for the year ahead. [+]

Hey, how long do you think you'll be there tmw? I've got a 5.30 book release party I have to go to, but wd love to come by after...

Wed Dec 01 15:51:45 +0000 2010

Today is one of those days when I'm extremely grateful for a sabbatical that lets me work at home in my pajamas when it's nasty out.

I've been a dept chair the entire time I've had tenure, so no. But oh I look forward to someday having that fatcat tenured life.

Happily eating at least some of my words from yesterday; this month's free ebook from UChicagoP is available in Kindle/BN formats [+]

as well as ADE. A fantastic step - thanks, @gkiely.

Hey, WP geniuses: just updated a site from 2.9 to 3.0.2 and now the media uploader opens in a new page instead of the popup/lightbox. Halp?

Hmmm. You know, no. I think I can pull myself together sometime in the next six hours.

Oh, I see. I was getting the pronouns & referents confused. \(It was that he said she didn't grade them that threw me\.\) Nervy!

Quick poll: If someone were to post an article draft online for comment, would you be more likely to read and comment: [+]

Thu Dec 02 15:34:55 +0000 2010

if that draft were a standard \(if very, very long\) blog post, or if it were in CommentPress? [-]

Good point.

Thu Dec 02 15:39:45 +0000 2010

Replying to @dancohen

I do take your point about the apparent complexity of CP. But I worry about the tl;dr factor of a very long column of text. [+]

Thu Dec 02 15:48:02 +0000 2010

Replying to @dancohen

I'm also not sure that paragraph-level permalinks are less alienating/more helpful. But the standard blog post is certainly so.[-]

Thu Dec 02 15:49:18 +0000 2010

Replying to @BGCDML

The newest CP actually has a nice "general comments" feature; hasn't yet been fully tested to see if it gets that thorough response.

Thu Dec 02 15:50:04 +0000 2010

Replying to @dancohen

No, I suppose it's not. I mostly was curious what the state of thinking about platform and discussion is right now. [+]

Thu Dec 02 15:58:46 +0000 2010

Replying to @dancohen

But I think @swarthmoreburke is right: the key factor \(as always\) is social rather than technological - community not platform.[-]

Thu Dec 02 16:00:01 +0000 2010

Replying to @dancohen and @swarthmoreburke

I could not possibly agree more. It's the key to the future of scholarly communication.

Publishers have the potential to be highly influential as aggregators, but they haven't yet figured out [+]

Thu Dec 02 16:39:58 +0000 2010

Replying to @BryanAlexander

that that's where their future lies. Most influential now are the communities that form within social media, I think. [+]

Thu Dec 02 16:40:45 +0000 2010

Replying to @BryanAlexander

But we need better ways of uncovering and filtering the overflow of content, which is where publishers would be helpful. [-]

Thu Dec 02 16:41:40 +0000 2010

Replying to @BryanAlexander

Not entirely sure I'm following the question, but my immediate sense is that the vast majority is non-campus-based. [+]

Thu Dec 02 17:24:20 +0000 2010

Worse: it's that he knows it.

Thu Dec 02 17:40:48 +0000 2010

Replying to @dancohen and @BryanAlexander

I'd like to know more about that, too.

Thu Dec 02 19:02:09 +0000 2010

Replying to @BryanAlexander

My sense? Not far at all. Some \(mostly centered in DH\) get it, but on average, non-print publishing still doesn't "count."

Thu Dec 02 19:11:05 +0000 2010

I really did mean to go work at the office today. But I just looked up and saw it's almost 3, and realized all I've eaten today is a banana.

Thu Dec 02 19:49:59 +0000 2010

It has been an intense day of work. And it's not done. The fruits of which will be available soon.

Thu Dec 02 19:50:47 +0000 2010

Replying to @mlaconvention

Just got them - many thanks! They'll definitely come in handy.

Thu Dec 02 20:53:25 +0000 2010

Replying to @mlaconvention

Yes, absolutely! Have been considering my reply as I work on the thing I'm about to post...

I'll re-announce this tomorrow, but the draft of my article on Infinite Summer is now up and open for comment: http://bit.ly/eXdvWZ #infsum

Thu Dec 02 21:04:01 +0000 2010

Replying to @dancohen

Both of those things are absolutely true, and serious issues. Was thinking abt the Instapaper issue just today, in fact.

Thu Dec 02 21:42:18 +0000 2010

Replying to @dancohen

Wondering if a plugin like Anthologize might help mitigate the single-page issue?

Thu Dec 02 21:44:05 +0000 2010

Replying to @dancohen

This is much like what I was complaining about w/r/t books that are unavailable for iPad the other day. What did I do without it?

Thu Dec 02 21:46:25 +0000 2010

Replying to @dancohen

There isn't, alas. Something that I think needs to get built into CP. I'll pass it on to the developer, who's been very receptive.

Thu Dec 02 21:47:41 +0000 2010

Replying to @ernestopriego

Ooh, nice. I'll definitely pass that idea on, too.

Thu Dec 02 21:55:30 +0000 2010

Replying to @ernestopriego

The other problem with open review: the uninterpretability of silence. It's nice to know what yours means!

Yeah, it would be. There's comments-by-page and comments-by-commenter, but no chronological listing of all comments, alas.

Having these small moments at which I recognize that my current project actually bears some serious relationship to both of the last two.

Sun Dec 05 00:17:01 +0000 2010

It's the late academic version of that moment in college when all your classes are suddenly talking about the same thing.

Okay, stomach, I've had it. You either *do* want me to eat or you *don't.* Make up your mind.

At the moment, it wants only ginger ale. But just an hour ago it was brave and wanted soup!

It may. After yesterday's all-noodle soup diet I thought I was in the clear, but next time it mentions food I'll try popcorn.

But if you're talking about representations of burritos, then they are indeed figural.

Perhaps always already limned by the figural.

Mon Dec 06 20:22:14 +0000 2010

Whoever copyedited the book I am reading needs a stern talking-to. Sheesh.

Mon Dec 06 20:39:32 +0000 2010

I wish I were just being persnickety. But this otherwise awesome book has a ton of errors, and it's making me crazy.

Mon Dec 06 20:45:17 +0000 2010

Replying to @RepoRat

Perhaps, which is itself cause for dismay. But this is a pretty high-end press that I believe does still use copyeditors.

Mon Dec 06 21:00:29 +0000 2010

Replying to @ncecire

Sadly, no. I'd feel better if it were, given that they're really a trade press with a uni name. It's Duke, which breaks my heart.

Has full cc/pw generation/identities support, and the design is very 1P native. Actually better than the FF plugin, I think.

Shot a lovely bit of video of the mobile carillon last night - which transferred to my laptop in portrait rather than landscape.
