If You Build It They Will Come” is a paper by Tim Dunlop about how bloggers can be a new kind of public intellectuals who engage in dialogue with the public rather than talking to them. Tim Dunlop’s PhD (finished a couple of years ago, started Before Blogs) was very relevantly on deliberative democracy and the role of intellectuals within such a structure, and his weblog, The Road to Surfdom, is an interesting read, too.

    Interesting, perhaps, but Tim does tend to let his “true believer” status dominate his intellect. Still, he’s human, so we shouldn’t be too hard about that.
