Academic blogging

A very good article in Slate on the perils of academics' blogging. The author, Robert Boynton, a non-blogging academic, raises some interesting points about academic antipathy to blogging. This one reminded me of the debate among librarians' about the worth(lessness) of Wikipedia. "The current antipathy toward blogging may have something to do with the fact that universities have no tools for judging blogs."
