Blogging for knowledge workers: incubating ideas

Mathemagenic

While my Dutch is still far from perfect I am happy with any opportunity to reach local audiences. However, having a vision and installing blogging software is not enough: getting blogging to work in an organisation means helping potential bloggers to find out how weblogs might be useful for them personally and how to sustain blogging in a long-term. Information filtered by blogger networks that you belong to is likely to be relevant to you personally. Integration

Blogs as boundary objects

Mathemagenic

While blogging might provide a window onto practices of the blogger, on a surface weblog is just an artefact: text, links and bits of other media. Publishing makes one’s weblog traces exposed, so others can learn from them without necessarily engaging directly with the blogger.

What pragmatists might want to know about blogging

Mathemagenic

Publishing to a broad and often unknown audience is what weblogs are primarily known for: one can use weblog tools to make particular piece of information available to others without pushing it to them.

Blog as a nexus of multimembership and accidental brokering

Mathemagenic

While to an extend weblogs do represent bloggers behind them and are often perceived as their online identities, studies presented in my dissertation also indicate that blogging involves many challenges of dealing with different audiences that a weblog serves (the results of blog networking study provide examples of both ). Integration This is a piece from the current version of final chapter of my dissertation where I discuss blogging across various boundaries.

Blog as an edge zone

Collaborative Thinking: Blogging Without Permission

Im dead sure though that my superiors never concerned themselves with my ability or inability to remain objective at work, given my strong opinions; they worried only about an appearance of bias (specifically, a liberal bias), and apparently they worried about it more than any potential fallout from firing a popular blogger with an audience that was already large and was sure to grow much larger when news of his firing put him in the national spotlight.

The Psychology of Twitter: Doubly Addictive

How to Save the World

Just like a newbie blogger, no one reads what you write, at first. This way, you build an audience. Just as there are 'A-list' bloggers with thousands of readers, there are 'A-list' tweeters who have audiences in the tens of thousands. Unsurprisingly, there are bloggers who simply 'tweet' links to their latest blog posts. It appears that Google Wave will incorporate it, but expect to see IM and Twitter-type reverse-IM tools integrated within the next few months.
