I hope to write a post early next week on my main blog about whether legal academics should blog. There are lots of angles here, including
– legal (professional and ethical considerations),
– academic (how, if at all, does it contribute to teaching, research, administration, society – update – and, importantly, whether and there should be institutional recognition for it),
– form (what form a blog should take, and how if at all should be it be supported by twitter and other forms of social media).
I have sketched out a lot of my own thoughts, and have quite a lengthy draft post already, but I know that I will have overlooked obvious points, so I thought I would try to harness the wisdom of crowds but putting this plea out there:
if you have any thoughts at all on the issue, please let me know.
A tweet, a link to an interesting source (blawggers, twitterers, websites), a comment, and email, even a carrier pigeon, would be great.
As Shakespeare might have put it:

Any and all thoughts gratefully recevied.
Many thanks, Eoin.
