  • \nVoltaire as an example of the statement above. The Philosopher was probably one of the most networked scholars of his time, with more than a thousand European correspondents\nNetworks of correspondence was quite useful during the Classic Age as a form of establishing and maintaining connections with the outside world in a rather informal, yet meaningful way. Other thinkers of that time also made use of the Epistolary genre to establish their networks beyond their local whereabouts: Erasmus and more recently Darwin \nCheck Republic of Letters: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nw0oS-AOIPE \nCharles Darwin corresponded with over 2000 individuals worldwide, exchanging his views on scientific matters, his health and family life... in http://great-scientists.suite101.com/article.cfm/charles_darwins_letters \n\nRead more at Suite101: Charles Darwin's Letters: Darwin Correspondence Project Expands his World Wide Web http://great-scientists.suite101.com/article.cfm/charles_darwins_letters#ixzz0p5hMEPG6\n\nDarwin corresponded widely, asking for information and opinions, checking facts. He was very scrupulous in giving credit, just look at the footnotes in his books. But actually the flow was not one-way. Yes, Darwin was a phenomenal networker. He would probably have had a blog. in http://agro.biodiver.se/2009/02/blogging-the-big-birthday-darwin-the-seed-networker/ \n
