Why Publish in a Third-Rate Journal When You Can Publish in a First-Rate Blog?
That was just one of the many comments made by first-rate blogger Tyler Cowen of George Mason’s Economics Department, and author of Marginal Revolution (listed by the WSJ as one of the top 25 economics blog), during our phone conversation last week.
Tyler is just one of many bloggers at GMU, which is taking a strongly entrepreneurial approach to integrating new media into the job of an academic. If you are interested in hearing more, I will be interviewing Tyler on my online talk show, Metanomics. We use pretty much the same technology as for FASRI Roundtables, but our audience is far larger (several hundred live attendees), and the production values are spectacular, thanks to our professional graphic art department and film crew).
