Speaking of all of this technical stuff, there is a very cool post about academic citations at The Immanent Frame. They have added a new feature to their blog that provides a drop-down list of standard ways of citing that particular blog entry – MLA, APA, Chicago, etc. It’s a very convenient way of getting the correct citation information for a blog post (if, that is, a blog post is something that you should or could cite – I have a feeling the answer to that depends on your discipline).
A side question: has anyone cited a blog in an academic paper? What was the context and the reaction?
