The very elements of blogging that make it most valuable -a networked audience, open conversation, low barriers to entry, and transparency-are also most threatening to established strictures of academic behaviour. While each may be valued by individual scholars, the university as an institution in many cases relies on treating the public as a mass, providing authority to limited channels of communication, constructing barriers to scholarly discourse, amd maintaining bureaucratic partitions between academe and other parts of the life of a scholar. A recent essay in the Chronicle of Higher Education warned academics seeking jobs to avoid blogs precisely because of these properties, and the possibility that a hiring committee may be threatened by a candidate’s blog.

Pq la cultura del libro lo ve como una amenaza y de ahí el desprestigio.
Blogs are generally perceived to invoke a culture of mass amateurization of content, where the value and credibility of the authorial voice is made vulnerable through commentary systems.
Efectivamente, hasta ahora siempre ha sido ‘publico’ y ahí queda, no te doy tiempo a réplica u opinión, no al menos a mí, quizás en tu sofá cuando me estés leyendo…¿por qué correr el riesgo de amenazar la autoridad de cada uno en un tema al saberse opinado?
Thus, of all industries, the traditional book, magazine, and cross-media publishing market is most likely to under-value the influence of blogs, and to depict the writing in blogs as less finished, less authoritative, and less considered than that which might be found in traditional works. But in practice, the opposite is true.
