Confessions of a Community College Dean: The Entrepreneurial Option

Confessions of a Community College Dean: The Entrepreneurial Option: "But is writing only to create new knowledge? What about great knowledge that hasn't been distilled widely? What about those that don't have time to read the great new tomes but have time to question or explore individual ideas.

I also think we're getting at the idea of static (books) vs. dynamic and communication in general is moving more toward the dynamic.

Also, blogging allows those of us without 3 colleagues in 'related areas' to talk to others with like interests.

And, can you imagine 'traditional faculty' talking with 'traditional administrators' the way we're doing right now in this blog? I think not. So, isn't this blog in and of itself creating new knowledge - taking the mystery out of what goes on upstairs and promoting at least a bit more understanding between the 'tiers' or at least helping some of us understand 'the dark side' - at least from Dean Dad's point of view ;-)"
