Academic blogging is Beaujolais Nouveau

Terry McAndrew Terry McAndrew has posted a thoughtful entry on Blogging for Bioscience on his institutional blog at Leeds.
I have been thinking a lot about how Blogging can contribute to advancing the cause of Bioscience teaching. My gut feeling is that it will enable an honest exchange of fresh ideas, which can be gently harvested into the basket far quicker than the formal publication route. Not so much rough-and-ready but fresh-and-ready. A sort of Beaujolais Nouveau to the McAllan or Glenlivet.
Read the rest of his article, but you won't be able to leave him a comment unless you work at Leeds because ELGG comments are closed to outsiders. Boo!


  1. "because ELGG comments are closed to outsiders. Boo!"

    Worth noting this is the decision of Leeds, not Elgg. They could have public comments if they wanted to.

  2. Yes, that's what I was trying to imply - thanks for clarifying that.
