Sample text

I’m often surprised by who turns out to be reading it (historians, English professors, scientists, professional critics, editors, librarians, the occasional novelist or poet). —which sometimes bothers me, sometimes amuses me. 58 Not all images of academic blogging are as positive as Burstein’s experience as a glimpse at The Little Professor might lead one to believe. In 2005, a professor using the name ‘‘Ivan Tribble’’ published a piece in The Chronicle of Higher Education where he argues that blogging, seen from the view of a search committee, might be bad for academic careers: A [job] candidate’s blog is more accessible to the search committee than most forms of scholarly output.

Because he examines all verbal behavior on the basis of its fit into his stimulus/response/reinforcement continuum, Skinner’s work allows us to see the blogs for what they are, a heightening of an old means for the use of words within a new technological context, and not as simply a qualitatively new type of conversation. Just as the blogs also hearken back to a type of newspaper discussion superseded by the rise of the commercial press from the 1840s on, they reflect a conversational style (and consideration of words) that has been with us in speech since language began.

The Web page is, too, but without assurance that what one person gets will be identical to what another receives. The page changes because of the particulars of an individual’s screen and browser (or device), for example, and not only because someone has deliberately altered the page. Ong saw a precision in verbal description developing through the coupling of word and image in print culture as it grew, a coupling allowing exact, unbending detail of a sort not available before (even though, before moveable type, illustrations could be reproduced exactly, the words, copied by hand, would be prone to error).
