Jeffrey Keefer has inspired me to join in his little adventure in reading more articles in the company of others. I am going to try to contribute to Jeffrey’s and others’ experiences whilst making it work in some way for me. My contributions will have a thinkaloud element to aid reflection, and I hope to experiment with graphic as well as text summaries. Inspired by danah boyd’s work on the affordances of networked publics and taking them into my own public/private context, I will consider the persistence, replicability, scalability (not so much), and searchability of what I find and do.
So I would like to:
- find more articles that may be of interest
- read ones that seem promising
- collect my thoughts about them and links to interesting thoughts from others
- be able to find all of above in future
So while I think about how I will deal with paywalls, linking to Mendeley database, good ways to record thoughts and links, it’s always worth thinking about some old school approaches and how connections happened.
