Ack! You’re exactly right. For better or for worse, that sentence is new to this draft, and so hadn’t previously been read by anyone but me”¦

Are you sure that people are as trapped in “the codex” as you claim? My guess is that most professionals spend far less working time with bound books than with other formats for written matter. We read e-mail, circulate memos, print drafts, read drafts, print and read loose-leaf PDFs, put together or read 3-ring binders of materials. etc. And that’s not even counting Death by PowerPoint!

I’m not sure that it’s a bad thing that we use print-like metaphors to explore new media. Gotta start with something”¦

Hmmm. I wonder if one of the adaptations disables something in the CSS. I’ll have to see if I can replicate the bug here”¦

It is an adapted and distributed version of IE 6.0 used by the university on a Windows 2000 operating system

Yikes. Which IE, on which operating system? This sounds ugly!

Oh, yes, of course. I do not mean to suggest that I am espousing the position above; only attempting to speculate about circumstances under which one might claim a “publishing” status for blogs that would take precedence over that of wikis”¦

I see. But I also wonder if this might be precisely one way that people see web-native publishing: getting away from a sequential release schedule of texts. Take a journal like electronic book review that specifically eschews discrete sequential “numbers” or “issues” in favor of a group of ongoing threads to which content is added as it is ready. They’re very happy to have gotten away from the print-imposed forms of the volume and number, toward an expanding, interconnecting body that is more wiki-like. And yet I wouldn’t hesitate to call what they do “publishing.”

I have now over a period of nearly 5 days written several comments and very few others have written anything. I guess that this indicates that in order to get the “liveliness of convercation and interaction” requred, some kind of community has to exist. May be in the form of an established scolarly web site, journal portal, or blog on which the CommentPress article is published.
