My first takeaway from Jon Udell’s most recent post is not about the main subject; it’s the reminder to
narrate the work. As mentioned in one of his first comments off of that google search, the narration is valuable to both others (via search pickup), as well as to the writer. It helps them clarify their thinking, improve their craft, and expose their ideas. Some of my favorite posts are of exactly this type. Thanks for reminding me, Jon…I’m going to try to pick up with more of that type of posting again.
(though note, I said
first takeaway…I’m a big fan of open science and the concept of the scientific web. It’s just not what this quick rant is about. *grin*)
