An Alternative Vision For Scholarship

Filed under: Academia,Blogs,Culture — by teofilo @ 12:32 am

I’ve had many disputes with John Emerson over the years, but I’m very much in favor of this idea of his.  Personally I think I’m much too bourgeois to go for the full bohemian version, but I can definitely see myself supporting myself with a non-academic middle-class job of some sort and doing research on the side.  Blogging, as a medium with both low barriers to entry and minimal distribution costs, seems like it will be enormously useful in this context.
