Bordwell blog

This might be the time to mention that David Bordwell and Kristin Thompson are now blogging at davidbordwell.net. To my knowledge, it's the only example of senior scholars in the field blogging on film. Their maverick relation to the field - and the fact that Bordwell is now emiritus at Wisconsin - may have a lot to do with the particular inspiration for them to turn to the internet as a writing venue. Still, I hope to see more and more scholars out there find a role for less formal internet-based writing as a supplement to their formal, peer-reviewed scholarship.

Sorry, Chris, if my earlier comment came across as flippant or snarky--it was meant more as a commentary about the nature of blogging and academic time commitments.
