Links of the Day #10

A blog of PhD acknowledgements. I would never have thought about creating a blog for this purpose. The Internet never ceases to amaze. Anyway, the submissions make mine sound dull. Should I contribute?

Lorenz Khazaleh: "Nearly 70% of all Americans believe the university should, as its primary function, provide job training rather than cultivate critical thinking. Maybe that's the point we have to start from."

John Postill suggests two ways to disseminate anthropological knowledge by digital means: 1. We should keep doing those digital things that 'work' for us as individual scholars and students, e.g. making short ethnographic videos for YouTube, keeping a personal research blog, commenting on other people's blogs, sharing anthropological contents via Facebook and Twitter, collaborating via social bookmarking sites or wikis, etc. ... 2.Collectively, we should continue to strengthen and protect the anthropological 'digital commons', i.e that collegial space in which we co-produce and share anthropological knowledge digitally for non-commercial purposes.
