The internet and virtual scholarly communities
Thanks to Bruce Landon's Weblog for Students for a link to a very interesting article re: the impact of computer-mediated communication (the internet) on the dynamics of the "invisible universities of scholars."
I know that the internet/web has greatly expanded the connections I've recently created and maintained with a broader array of researchers. Interesting reading for those who are interested in the Social Life of Information (this is a great book to read) in scholarly communities.
