Blogs and Legal Scholarship

Kenneth Anderson has a very interesting post on Law Professors Blogging (here).

His comments were sparked by the recent conference held at Harvard on Law & Blogging. (See the papers here).

Some interesting questions emerged:
1. To what extent blogging is a source of scholarship?
2. Will blogging replace conferences as a way of exchanging scholarly information?
3. Will law journals survive the competition with blogs?

I conclude with a point on european academics. Few of them blog, and many do not even know what it is all about. They are a bit slow to cope with a fast changing world of scholarship.
