    • Onto the Article...
      Published in 2005 as a Blog-like post.
      Initially; blogs as unimportant.
      Now; blogs have authority.
      Blog community; grown dramatically.
      Blogs as continually emerging narratives; ongoing discourse
      Popular by reception
      Democratic nature?
      Will it lead tosocial change?
      Centralised?
    • Authorship..
      Context is expected
      Context = Metacommunication (information about information) (Bateson)
      Reader completes experience through understanding context
      Non-present author represented in context of writing
      Knowledge from group to individual
      Concept of author romanticised
      Author determined field of context as well
    • Blogs and Authorship
      Problematic
      No pre-determined amount of information
      Legitimacy of information?
      Much more of an infrastructure for info
      Username, URL, profile privacy levels etc.
    • Blogs and Authorship pt 2
      Also, can become significant through relevance in the mediai.e. Dan Rather.
      A replacement of current homepages
      More user friendly, opens it up to more people
      Books and Blogs do differ, but also have similarities.
      No “deadline” for a blog (unless it has subscribers)
      No quality filter for blogs
      Open dialogue
    • Arguments against
      Webpages VS Blogs; conventional?
      Webpages aren’t meant to be discursive or overly “wordy”
      Flawed comparison; use of blogs to websites.
      Collaborative writing in blogs?
      Messy crediting necessary? (Unnecessary; not a book)
      Create a third, collaborative persona?
    • Questions?
    • References
