Back to Blogging
But during that same time period when I had ignored this blog, I wrote about 50 new lectures for my two courses at UC Berkeley ( Information Organization & Retrieval and The Information & Services Economy), wrote two other papers, gave several professional presentations at meetings and conferences, and ran a very interesting research seminar. I estimate that I wrote 2000 emails to students, former students, or other folks, and probably half of them had some interesting information that might have been useful to other people if I’d exposed it here.
So today I’m going to see if I can blur that line between blogging and work, and see if I can use this blog to publish more of what I’m writing and talking and hearing about. Today was the first day of the spring semester, and I’m once again teaching Document Engineering. This will be the 7th time I’ve taught this class, and it will be the last time, and that’s another good reason to spend more time here reflecting about it as the semester progresses.
Blurring the line between work and blogging, sounds familiar. Did you see the post by Luis Suarez on him not using email anymore?
