Blogger now supports threaded comments

Blogger now supports threaded commenting, which means that it is now much easier to differentiate between whether someone is making a general comment on the thread, or responding to another comment on the thread.

Am I a science journalist?

Am I a science journalist? | AJCann | Scoop.it
"I’m not saying that anyone who starts writing or talking is automatically a journalist – there is more to it than that. But I am saying that anyone can be. I have no training in science journalism and I never did an internship. All I have is what I call my Masters from the University of Pissing About on the Internet. I almost stumbled into this profession, and there are many others taking the same weird amateur route."

For every blog, there is a season

For every blog, there is a season | AJCann | Scoop.it

"Just as reaching the end of a good book feels like demise writ small, so, too, does shutting down a blog. A blog's promise, encapsulated in its reverse chronology, is that there will always be another post, even if the reader doesn't know when. Putting a stake in the sand makes that piece of life recede into the distance, time letting words drift ever farther away."

I wonder if Tumblr will be the space that students might curate, given the rapid rise in users and it's popularity amongst that age group?

For some reason, I've never found Tumblr particularly intuitive. I'm wondering I'd scoop.it might have a role for student curation...

I quite like Tumblr, posting with the bookmarlet is relatively easy and I like that you can easily view content people you follow are curating. I think the draw back is that commenting isn't standard, though you can easily connect your Disqus account. Looking forward to getting to grips with scoop.it
