Was just reading the print version of Lehman’s article and was wondering what you would have had to say in response and here’s your link…perhaps a response on the next post?
To me, his analysis is almost childish, basically: ‘Bloggers are just as exlusive as us ‘real’ journalists and no better at what we do.’ Plus, he completely ignores the spaces where bloggers can have the most impacts, as in developing nations with oppressive regimes that ‘real’ journalists don’t cover.
Ethan, thanks for the information. If any of your readers are blogging the topics of mentoring, volunteerism, tutoring, or capacity building, I encourage you to post a link to your blog in the Forum and Discussion Boards section of the Tutor/Mentor Connection web site.
I’ve already added this site to that section.
Thanks, Drew – yes, the link is there mostly as a bookmark for me. I hope to read it and write a critique soon – it’s not intended to be an endorsement… :-)
