Kant and copyright: Public sphere vs public domain
Prawfsblawg's Dan Markel on law blogging (or blawging, if you will)

On academic (and specifically economic) blogging

Mark D. White

I've been meaning to mention the first piece for a while, but when I saw the second piece today I decided to pair them up. First is an article from last week's The Economist regarding the importance of the blogosphere in criticizing mainstream economics from the viewpoint of heterodox scholars, in light of the current economic crisis. The second is a piece from yesterday's Chronicle by Andrea Doucet on the relationship between blogging and traditional scholarship in general; I especially appreciated her focus on the different styles of writing, reading, and thinking required by each.
