Electronic scholarship

I want to acknowledge here that while I've been (physically: at the School of Theology retreat; and virtually: getting the first five Stimulus articles into "final form") away Mark Goodacre has posted a good listing of recent activity on Open Source Scholarship but as well a new slant to the talk of doing scholarship in an electronic environment has been opened up by Rubén Gómez mention of Davide's Notes
, Davide is doing a University of London extramural BD, and is blogging his thoughts and some of what he discovers.

Naturally this thread is being taken up by others notably by Mark with some comments on Student Blogs. As Rubén points out the blog gives an insight into Davide's thoughts as he plans his degree, Mark adds the interesting suggestion that maybe students could be asked to keep a blog much as they are sometimes asked to keep a logbook. That's a suggestion I'll be pondering... What struck me about Davide's contributions was that he hacollectionon of short writings on biblical studies topics that (he's obviously a strong student) provide convenient bit-sized introductions. Now, I'm always on the look out for "Noddy Guides" to point my own students towards to orient and give shape to their reading. It would be potentially useful if Davide would list his posts by category (I spotted a few on social aspects of ancient Israelite life) or if the guys at Deinde would add him to their Biblical Studies Search tool.

Oh, yes, with nice intertextual self-referentiality Davide blogs about Rubén and Mark blogging about him.... With some nice warnings about how adding assessment to the blogging mix might change the medium. More food for thought....

So all-in-all "electronic scholarship" makes quite a good heading for this catch-up post...
