Professions in the blogosphere: add information architects, knowledge managers

Lilia on Professions in the blogosphere: is there a pattern? :

I would add KM people who are trying to uncover and understand grassroots knowledge flows and then enhance them to add business value. I also thought about usability professionals although I'm not aware if there are a lot of blogs by them.

[...] I'm thinking why such an articulation is so powerful. I guess this is something to do with another thing: teaching someone else is the most effective learning method (don't have the reference). Explaining things is the best way to understand them... [Mathemagenic]

Thanks for helping me make my list more comprehensive. I'm not sure if they are the same thing as usability professionals, but obviously many information architects/web designers are webloggers too (they got the ball rolling in the first place), and they are pattern explainers as well.

We've got blog: online, and free!

Lazyweb does it again! My wish has come true! "If you were interested in reading - but uninterested in paying for - the collection of articles printed in the book We've got blog (which includes an introduction by the esteemed Rebecca Blood), you may be surprised to realise that almost all of the pieces within it are freely available on the interweb. And don't worry - most of them are just as interesting online as they are squirted onto paper." [plasticbag]

This weblog is a month old

and I've enjoyed every minute of it ever since the first day I went "on the air". I discovered (and got discovered by) quite a few interesting people that I otherwise would never have found out about, mainly through reading, consulting my referer logs and looking at the blogging ecosystem data. I'm looking forward to the next month!

Saving the creative commons

Professions in the blogosphere: is there a pattern?

Thinking about the professions that are well-represented in the weblog world...

I've been trying to articulate out what these professions have in common that could explain why weblogging has become an especially popular practice in those areas. I'm not finished thinking about it yet, but I think the commonality has to do with uncovering the implicit. 

Software developers patiently explain to a machine things for which humans wouldn't need an explanation. Journalists take threads from different places and build a coherent story out of them. Teachers patiently explain to students things for which trained specialists wouldn't need an explanation. Librarians gather and organize explicitly material that is only implicitly connected. Lawyers, whenever they seek to correctly interpret the intent of a law, need to uncover its spirit which is almost always implicit. All of them are not just pattern recognizers, they are also pattern explainers.

Some other professions, such as medical practice, mechanics and politics, are little concerned about making patterns explicit, and I wouldn't expect weblogging to pick up too fast in their ranks. But there are teachers in all of these areas, so there's hope.

Clue sniffing

Clue sniffing. "So what's cluetrainish about RackShack? They engage in conversation with their customers. The head of the company frequently posts to forums, asks for user's opinions and answers people's questions. The company tries to be as transparent as possible (as opposed to presenting only polished, corporate image that people don't care about)". [Krzysztof Kowalczyk's Weblog]

Academic-industry partnerships and publication delays

The negative impact of the commercialization of biomedical research on open publication is considered in two recent articles. In the August 6 issue of CMAJ , Willison and MacLeod comment that "Engagement in academic–industry research partnerships and commercialization of university research were significantly associated with publication delays". In the August 17 issue of BMJ, Charles Marwick notes that "A recent court decision narrowed the definition of proprietary information to the production process—how a product is made. It excludes ideas or study designs.". [FOS News]

Malcolm Gladwell: The Naked Face - Can you read people's thoughts just by looking at them?

"To see what is intended to be hidden, or, at least, what is usually missed, opens up a world of uncomfortable possibilities. This is the hard part of being a face reader."

NYTimes: Weblogs getting academic recognition

NYTimes, Arts section: The Ancient Art of Haranguing Has Moved to the Internet. "But the surest sign that blogging is no longer just a para-journalistic phenomenon is academic recognition: this fall, the Graduate School of Journalism at the University of California at Berkeley is inaugurating a course that uses weblogs to investigate current debates over intellectual property." (Visit this page if you don't feel like filling the NYT's personal information form.)
