“Out of interest, what is it about this type of digital interaction that you are finding motivating?”
The background of other people, who are looking at the same subjects and coming up with radically different ideas. Some are clearly well practiced scholars, who know how to write in an academic voice, some are not. But all see things that I can use in my blog posts with my own voice. The fact too that despite all our differences in experiences, motivations and ambitions, we are all pulling in the same direction, as a community. We’re free to drop in at any point, comment, have our own posts commented on. It’s an incubation period at the moment perhaps, but I really enjoy the discussion around the ideas, and the forming of what might yet become a holistic view on the subjects raised which would never be possible to achieve if you were operating in isolation.
