We’re sure Marx and Orwell would have blogged



Orwell, definitely,” said Instapundit’s Glenn Reynolds. “Marx would have had to acquire a bit more ‘snap’, I’m afraid, to have made it as a blogger.”

Well, no to most of this actually. The ones that are interesting are the guys who have some knowledge which they wish to impart or a few well based ideas to thrash through with equaly knowledgeable friends

An example in biology, an area I am interested in, Evolving Thoughts, the weblog of Australian based academic John Wilkins. His blog roll:


Aetiology
Afarensis
De Rerum Natura
Dienekes' Anthropology Blog
Dispatches from the Culture Wars
Ideas of Imperfection: Nostalgia for the Stone Age
John Hawks Anthropology Weblog
Musgrave's Astroblogger
National Center for Science Education
Pharyngula
Philosophy of Biology
PostSecret
Sarkar Lab WebLog
Scott Page's All-too-common dissent
The Lippard Blog
The Loom
The Panda's Thumb
The Questionable Authority
Thoughts in a Haystack
Unscrewing The Inscrutable

He gives a plug for a new philosophy and history of biology blog, hpb etc., by Robert Skipper of the U. of Cincinnati. Academic and arcanerie - experts in general - are a growth area in blogging. Its not just politics, social issues, or personal problems or pictures of cats in contorted poses.There are issues with academics coming outside the peer review system, but most would use a blog to publish a paper: more likely to pass on a few book titles or a useful idea they have come across in reading, or a considered interpretation of a academic text, which might need to be more than a book review.

These guys do not fill their blogs with mind-numbingly boring personal matters of concern only to their perpetrators or half-formed political opinions better left to pundits who actually know something. There's nothing wrong with expressing one's opinion about world events, but for most people this is done in a narrower setting such as a bar over a few drinks, shouting imprecations at some politicians soundbites or obfuscations onTV, or at a dinner party. Or, should it be: that's how it used to be before everyone got a blog or access to the comments of blogs.

Does your website have a contact page? I'm having trouble locating it but, I'd like to shoot you an
email. I've got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.

Here is my webpage ... torontowineeducation.com

I really love your website.. Great colors & theme.

Did you create this web site yourself? Please reply back as I'm hoping to create my very own site and would love to know where you got this from or just what the theme is called. Kudos!

I almost never drop remarks, however i did a
few searching and wound up here "We're sure Marx and Orwell would have blogged".

And I do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind.

Could it be simply me or does it look like a few of the responses appear like they are written by brain dead visitors?
:-P And, if you are writing at other online social sites, I
would like to follow anything fresh you have to post.
Would you make a list of every one of your social sites like your Facebook page,
twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
