Have you written about blogging in science or education? Please post the DOI below, and mark papers with a theoretical background with **.
10.1371/journal.pcbi.1000563 "Live Coverage of Scientific Conferences Using Web Technologies". Not quite sure what you mean by a theoretical background... - Ruchira S. Datta
@Ruchira: well, many papers just describe the use of blogs and roles as observational, and do not reflect on it in relation to theoretical models from the pedagogical literature that tell us what features are needed for optimal communication, education, etc... - Egon Willighagen
If you want many of the theoretical details and underlying principles, please check the KFTF book (definitely **+ see references therein) - It is not about blogging alone, it is about a much broader concept of finding, making sense, re-finding, and sharing information with yourself over various locations and with others, this is why this book is so important, since it discusses PIM (Personal Information Management) and learning. - joergkurtwegner
10.1109/eScience.2008.30 not so much theory there but in my unpublished piece i at least have a decent lit review and conceptual framework - Christina Pikas
@joerg - it's interesting you mention kftf or personal information management - i cover that in the unpublished piece but a lot of people had trouble with that part. maybe it's how i explained it. - Christina Pikas
@Christina - Nice work! 1. Any more conclusions in Shakar2007? besides "Electronic laboratory notebooks have not been well received because they force a rigid external structure on the record-keeping process (page 10)"? 2. As a KFTF reader I clearly like: "The blogs act as a learning tool as well as a tool for personal information management. Two participants post lists of links of interest, and then can re-find information through their blog.(page 26)" ... and can only agree with this. In times of information overload we simply "need" things supporting us and others Still, we have serious challenges to solve before this can happen, and a lot of them are in-vivo, not in-silico ... and when saying this I am looking especially in the direction of the "open ..." advocates, "open" does not automatically "make it work", but it can clearly reduce some barriers. - joergkurtwegner
@Christina: is the unpublished piece published now? Can you perhaps post it to Nature Preceedings? - Egon Willighagen
It's still unpublished - I just saw this note (sorry!) and posted it to Nature Preceedings... it has to be reviewed by curators before it goes live. - Christina Pikas
No worries! I just posted the comment an hour or two ago ;) Thanx for uploading to NP! BTW, can you read the wave in my blog? Do you have a wave account? If not, please email you, so that I can request one for you. - Egon Willighagen
I can see it - my google wave account is also cpikas - Christina Pikas
It's just a first draft now... I'm new to this stuff, but think I found in Miller1998 a theoretical framework I was looking for :) Will continue tomorrow... - Egon Willighagen
Is there a link to this Nature Preceedings content? - joergkurtwegner
No, not yet. It was posted yesterday, and the Nature offices don't open until tomorrow... - Egon Willighagen
it's the exact same article as was posted previously on my UMD website, but the link will probably be more stable on precedings: - Christina Pikas
Thanx! The DOI did not make what I submitted to our course, but will it to a later version. The wave has the current version... still draft, but a full story now. - Egon Willighagen
DOI -> Handle :) - Egon Willighagen
