ON THE ONE HAND, I work with academics who deduct marks from papers citing Wikipedia references. On the other hand, I hear other academics who want Wikipedia references to their work.
I wonder if both camps are wrong. Should proper respect go only to those references printed on paper? That sort of standard would change my perspective on self-publishing but only on one level. I still think there is room for epubs but I want the respect of a traditional source. Plus, there is the matter of front page coverage. Nothing turns heads or gets framed faster than a front page shot.
I finished a morning of briefings in which people talked about where they see stuff they respect. I've got a Moleskine page set aside with things to do in the space of high brow print. Now it's back to the Skunk Works to give it a sanity check.
