Over the last month, the one phrase that’s been sticking in my brain about Web logs is the one Jay Rosen offered up at BloggerCon and subsequntly included in his Ten Things Radical about the Weblog Form in Journalism. I’ve mentioned it here a couple of times before, but today I added t to the top of my nav bar because I think it’s just such a powerful reminder of something I’ve known for a long time but is becoming even more relevant now. “Every reader is a writer, every writer is a reader.” I just love the way Web logs facilitate the connection between the two, the ability to link to the reading we’re writing about. Really, when I get down to it, the thing I like best about this ease of publishing is the ease of connecting and reflecting. It is, I think, the most important skill we should be teaching our students to help them become information literate.
