Blogs, Tardiness, and Comments

We value punctuality here on the Internet. Unfortunately, between my second week of full student-teaching responsibilities and four classes in addition to this one, I have not read as widely as I should have. I’ve discovered a good blog for the math educators: Math-Blog. I have linked to its education section, which has an excellent booklist. I haven’t found something to comment on, but will in the next couple of days.

I wonder if any of you are aware of the school of thought that comments by their nature are harmful to the integrity of internet discourse. Here’s an interesting blog post discussing this viewpoint. It advocates posting responses on your own blog, and that this will create a higher level of discourse. What do you guys think?
