More for the Authority Files

Michael Jensen has a fascinating piece in the Chron on what authority might look like in the future – fusing values of the academy (prestige, quality, significance) with those of Web 2.0 (availability, interactivity, formation of subcultures within an abundant information landscape). Good on the Chron for making this one free!
