A blog is a great thing to have topical discussions. But the last contribution by Peter Head (here) prompts the question how do we guarantee a certain level of accessibility to the more scholarly postings? It is a shame that some of the heavier contributions are almost doomed to be buried into the archives of the blog. What are alternatives way of publishing contributions that are too 'light' for a print journal, and too heavy for a blog or email list? On-line journals? Wikis?
For example, an article review or response is often very helpful for a wider audience but seldom makes it into print. Our blog is of course interesting for those who are following it closely, but how many people will find PMH's critique back in two months time?
