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!
Found via an equally interesting post at shimenawa.

I'm an academic librarian at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota. Like all librarians at our small, liberal arts institution I am involved in reference, collection development, and shared management of the library. My area of specialization is instruction, with research interests also in media literacy, popular literacy, publishing, and assessment.
