Blogs and communication

The School of Architecture here at UNLV had its annual fall all-school meeting in the Architecture Studies Library last Wednesday. [For those who couldn't make it, the agenda and a few photos have been posted that give you the sense of it! http://www.library.unlv.edu/arch/events/20060830allschoolmeeting.html] Among other activities at the meeting, including an announcement of this blog!, I passed out a "technology survey" -- just to get an idea of the kinds of technology UNLV SOA students are using. In particular I was interested in whether many of them read blogs. Sadly the answer is: very few read blogs. Now I am faced with the question of why. Do they not read blogs because it is not a preferred form of communication, or do they not read blogs because there are relatively few blogs out there, or few blogs of interest? Obviously this is an experiment. Comments would help! As for other blogs out there, see the Internet Guide to Architecture Resources I have compiled http://www.library.unlv.edu/arch/rsrce/webrsrce/contents.html There is a section on blogs. Currently only five blogs are listed. Any suggestions for additions?
