Writing in the middle of the night

I awoke this morning at around 3:00a.m., not a usual thing for me. Within 30 minutes I was dictating notes to myself for a paper in response to a CFP from The Information Society. At that point I figured it was best to let the muse work and write it all down rather then expect my feeble brain to remember what I was dictating.

ICT Research and Disciplinary Boundaries: Is "Internet Research" a Virtual Field, a Proto-discipline, or Something Else? asks the question “Is Internet Research a virtual field wherein we have resigned to the permanence of disciplinary boundaries and created an overlay or virtual network across them? Or, are we seeing the emergence of a proto-discipline whose growth will knock down disciplinary boundaries and create a new institutional space? Or, is Internet Research a forerunner of some other configuration we barely understand? This special issue seeks to explore and chart out this evolving intellectual landscape.” Very cool, I cranked out 500 words before the sun arose.

But then I stopped and began to re-engage with the questions the CFP poses. Such as: What is a discipline? Is it the study of a place? A set of methodological tool? A organizational structure? An academic membership organization? Me thinks it is a good thing that this paper isn’t due until February 27, 2004. I’m sure there will be more musings on this work posted here in the future…long into the future.
