The Selfish Blogger – A discussion :-)

Jenny Connected

there has actually been some discussion about The Selfish Blogger Syndrome, which I would like to respond to with this post. So my most valuable discussions happen via email or on the research wikis I am working in. And Alan: I do think that postings in small isolated blogs *can* be integrated into larger discussions. And I would go further to add that if we believe in open, networked learning then we *should* strive to make that integration as effective as possible.

Researching as a team

Jenny Connected

This week, the research project has been a lot of fun. One of the fun things we are doing in this research project (investigation into people’s preferences in the CCK08 course for communicating in blogs or forums), is to examine ourselves as researchers as we go along. We have created a folder on the wiki for research reflections and these activities go in there. You prefer to systematically analyse ideas, a typical blogger with strong reflections.

There should be some research on it and I’m slowly digging into it, but so far have only the ingredients, but not the answers I want to have. The insights from my PhD research on how blogging supports the ‘fuzzy’ end of the knowledge work feed directly into that.

Blogging to grow ideas: weblog research ethics

Mathemagenic

It is a reconstruction of events, readings and weblog posts that shaped my understanding of the research ethics in relation to my PhD research. It’s still early in my PhD research and I have not give much thought to ethical questions of doing it. While doing it I realise that my previous research experiences do not provide any guidelines about using and quoting publicly available weblog data in a publication. 27 April 2004 Weblog research ethics.

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

Behind my PhD research is an interest in translating practices of early adopters of weblogs into something that those that come after them might use: an understanding of relative advantage of blogging in knowledge-intensive environments and it’s compatibility with existing practices. Bloggers discover each other through comments and recommendations. Taking effort to find interesting bloggers and commenting to their work is a good way to be found. Integration

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 ).

Blogging for knowledge workers: incubating ideas

Mathemagenic

Next to the hard work of translating insights from my PhD research it involved serious magic of turning work submitted in one language into a publication in another, so big thanks to everyone involved. 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.

MirandaNet: Common ties

Community Capers

The British government has actively worked to build good relations between technology manufacturers and vendors and the bastions of education and research.

Teachers are clearly the beneficiaries as MirandaNet establishes them as collaborators and researchers able to publish valued work for their peers.

It starts from being present as a blogger, finding and observing others; then possibly engaging in an interaction that might grow into a relation.

Open teaching and learning

Jenny Connected

Research has shown (for many years) that tutor ‘presence’ promotes student engagement online. I have been on the end of online ‘unpleasantness’ when in the open, so I know how it feels and I know the threats that this can pose to my reputation as a consultant, tutor, researcher and scholar.
