Articles – reading, annotating, summarising

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.

  1. I look forward to seeing what you come up with, Frances!

    I specially like your framing this in boyd’s work, along with your considerations of selecting articles based on the persistence, replicability, scalability, and searchability of what you find. What an interesting approach!
