Where's Nate?

living large in the four-oh-eight. wicked large.


hail to the bloggers valiant.

It's mildly annoying that I found out about this not through my current university, but through the Chronicle of Higher Education:

Michigan is offering free blogs to students, faculty, and staff. The university says its blog-hosting service, mBlog, isn't just a gimmick meant to amuse undergrads: Campus archivists will hand-pick blogs that may have historical value and archive their contents.

So this is pretty cool, as long as the blogs can be used for collaborative academic and extracurricular projects. And what if professors started accepting blog entries as assignments? While I doubt the B-school will plug into this movement right away, it could be a welcome distraction from next year's construction. Or an Accounting lecture.
