Interesting post. In my limited experience working with the academic community, I've had the sense that they saw themselves as keepers of knowledge, and those who wanted their knowledge bore the responsibility to seek it out. As a result, there was no interest in outbound communication: we're not going to push our knowledge out into the world, since those who want it will find us.

It seems that attitude is reflected in their use of blogging (or lack thereof). While there's still vigorous debate and information sharing within the walls of the academic community, there is still little interest in reaching past those walls to the rest of us.
