Probably the maddest idea yet: Toby and I plan to co-author a paper on Robert J. Nash‘s scholarly personal narrative methodology and its possible application to information systems. Former debate coach and student affairs specialist submit paper to MWAIS — right.

Nash’s idea of moral conversation comes from the same convictions as his idea of scholarly personal narrative. There is much to think about here, not only for scholarly research and publication but also for teaching (and etymology reminds us that, if we’re Nash, we refer to it as education), blogging, and participatory democracy… in other words, pretty much everything I’m interested in.
