Comments: The Internet Echo Chamber is Similar to Echo Chambers Elsewhere

That's not what I said in class. I do read blogs regularly, am impressed with many of them, and often act on information I find there. What I said was that if someone blogged about me or my articles, I don't feel compelled to follow it up. I'd rather read what people have to say about mroe important things.

Hmmmm ... yet here you are Joe, reading what someone blogged about you and then following it up.

Also, it seems strange to me that you wouldn't want to know how people are commenting on your work, either negatively or positively. Don't you want to know when you've made an error?

Also, if your work is not important enough for you to follow up on comments, why is it important enough for people to read in the first place?
