    Well written article Joseph. I took a look at Gloria’s article as well and it is disturbing if all we rely on is “reputation”. Key still is education and critical thought which seems to be lacking these days.

    Thanks for a thought-provoking piece. One point you didn’t have space to discuss is the nature of reputation. Who’s the arbiter of reputation? Is it the crowd and based on clicks? Do credentials still matter? Whose credentials merit greater reputation? Is there a reputational hierarchy and how do you move around in it (and does everyone have access and mobility)? What responsibilities, if any, does reputation connote (or convey)? Lots of interesting questions, esp. in the GST world, and perhaps fodder for your next commentary.

    Thank you Dr Kolvoord – very good points you are raising here and … I’d love to hear what the community’s reactions are to the original essay and to your comments.
