Wed Jun 25 20:19:15 +0000 2014

This week’s #AAUP14 & other convos have me thinking a bit aphoristically about the role of the digital in intellectual change. To wit:

Fri Jun 27 13:48:08 +0000 2014

Network-based knowledge carries distinction less in its means of distribution \(imprimatur\) than in its mode of reception \(community\).

Fri Jun 27 13:48:21 +0000 2014

Replying to @CameronNeylon

It’s exactly that modes of reception ARE modes of retransmission in the network.

Fri Jun 27 13:54:18 +0000 2014

Replying to @CameronNeylon

Actually, I did mean the authority of the transmitter \(Big Name Press/Journal\). The shift is in the locus of authority.

Fri Jun 27 13:59:42 +0000 2014

Replying to @CameronNeylon

That’s a very good question, and worth pondering further.

Fri Jun 27 14:19:07 +0000 2014

Replying to @Infomnivore

That may indeed be part of its effect. Our hope, though, is to use that aegis to empower community authorization.

Fri Jun 27 14:21:17 +0000 2014

Still pondering the shifting nature of authority in digital knowledge production. What does it mean for scholarship per se?

Fri Jun 27 15:17:49 +0000 2014

Digital scholarship is becoming increasingly \(though not exclusively\) collaborative, process-oriented, iterative, and diffuse.

Fri Jun 27 15:17:55 +0000 2014

The digital is, or should be, everywhere in teaching. It demands our attention, not because it is unusual, but because it is not.

I left my apartment in Brooklyn almost 2.5 hours ago. I am now in the Holland Tunnel. It appears I am about to miss my first flight ever.

Flight is in 45 minutes. Still about 15 minutes away.

Fri Jun 27 20:54:42 +0000 2014

Got to the airport & was told I could fly, but my bag wouldn’t make it. Ran for it anyhow. Got to the gate in time to board!

Fri Jun 27 21:25:50 +0000 2014

This was only thanks to some very sweet people who let me cut in front of them at security.

Fri Jun 27 21:26:33 +0000 2014
