Where's the beef?
In an Inside Higher Ed think piece, Steven J. Bell bemoans the lack of dissent in the library blogosphere:
As one explores and delves into the world of library blogs it soon becomes apparent that the rules of disengagement dominate the landscape. There one is likely to see a repetitious flood of posts exclaiming “What a great post by so-and-so” or “She’s got a must read post today”. Rarely does one see a post that starts with “I have to disagree” or “Boy, does he have it wrong.”
Q. Are academic librarian-bloggers not as contentious as bloggers in other areas of academia?
A. Maybe we just don't "need" to be right all the time. [JH]
