BLOGGING….Tim Dunlop has a long but interesting essay about blogging up at the Evatt Foundation website. If I can summarize, he says that bloggers are often wrong, fight like cats and dogs, and frequently end up looking pretty stupid, but those are all good things! In reality, we’re the new public intellectuals!

The essay is also, ahem, a bit more learned than we bloggers are used to, which is explained by this descriptive sentence at the end: “His PhD, completed in 2001, dealt with deliberative democracy and the role of intellectuals within such a structure.” Who knew?
