As I have in the past, I’d like to point out a librarian embedded in a faculty-focused blogging network. Brian Mathews recently moved his blog, The Ubiquitous Librarian, to the Chronicle Blog Network run by, you guessed it, The Chronicle of Higher Education. The new URL for Brian’s blog is here. And a few recent…

I chose this one more for the humourous title of the post since the content itself is very seriously intentioned. I almost see this as a double sequel to both the social media evilness post and to some of my recent ramblings on thought leadership. The post in question is We Don’t Need No Steenkin’…

Yet another science blogging community. The more the merrier. We’ve had another quiet period in the science blogging universe these last couple of months. It seems that the rapid evolution that kicked off with the founding of Scientopia in the wake of Pepsigate is continuing. And this is the big one: Scientific American Blogs. This…

Sometimes two posts just collide in my brain. I thought I’d share a recent case of this phenomenon. First up, marketing/PR/social media Rock Star Mitch Joel on taking the best advantage of the inherent evilness of social networks like Twitter in The New Media Pecking Order. Newsflash: the world is one big pecking order. My…

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I did a short presentation on Scholarship in the Public Eye: The Case for Social Media as part of a panel for a York Faculty of Graduate Studies Scholarly Communications Series. And yes, I was the Twitter guy, although some of the other presenters did talk about their use…

Why bother having a resume?

I’m not usually a big fan of Seth Godin’s guruish pronouncements, but I thought this one was a pretty good encapsulation of what it means to be a public professional or a public academic in the 21st century. In other words, Why bother having a resume? If you don’t have a resume, what do you…

A year of blog stats: 2010

In the spirit of openness and transparency and “does anybody really care except me” I’ve included some blog hit statistics below for 2010. These stats are from the Google Analytics application that ScienceBlogs has installed. For 2010, this blog got 77,630 visits and 91,022 pageviews. To put it all into perspective, to say that this…

Welcome to the long-awaited latest instalment in my occasional series of interviews with people in the library, publishing and scitech worlds. This time around the subjects of my first group interview are the gang at EngineerBlogs.org. From my welcome-to-the-blogosphere post, here’s a condensed bit about them: Cherish The Scientist (EB) I am an electrical engineer…

Yes, the interviews are back

Way back when, I used to post fairly frequent interviews with publishers, bloggers, librarians and scientists who I thought were interesting people to hear from. Mostly I wanted to hear about what they thought about changes in the scholarly publishing environment. I’ve got links to a bunch of them below, mostly to the old blog.…

Many thanks to Peter Janiszewski and Travis Saunders of Science of Blogging for reposting my old chestnut, If you don’t have a blog you don’t have a resume. I’ve closed the comments here so you can argue with me over at the other site.
