“This Dean is a blogger”

Santiago Iñiguez, Dean and Professor of Strategy

I agree with Rafael’s advice of March 11th and 12th “¿Qué es un blog de economía? ¿Cómo hacer un blog de economía?” (Part 1 and Part 2), and would like to share my perspective, as well as some other noteworthy blogs about economics (and their Technorati ranking). The following paragraphs are taken from an article written by Asia Inc, where I described what blogging means to me. Perhaps I should mention that since then, the blog that I participate in has had visits in the hundreds of thousands.

“When talking about blogging in general I must point out that it has saved me time, made me more efficient and opened my eyes to a changing media, communication and management education landscape. Now I jot down potential ideas for posts, or sources of information when going about my daily business and reflecting on the events of the day, which helps me better shape and clarify my own ideas, making them easier to communicate. In fact, I use many of the posts and comments published in the blog — and their background research — later in meetings, speeches or presentations.” Indeed as you see, I am reusing this very own article.

“Blogging has produced an immense opportunity for networking. Interestingly, my experience is that most of the networking does not happen openly through participation in the blog but rather because many of the readers contact me via email to address the issues discussed or to deal with other particular concerns. It is extremely interesting to be in contact with students, professors, managers andjournalists from all continents, and reassuring that in many cases we are in similar situations and our solutions to common problems, more often than not, coincide. Moreover, blogging has generated many unexpected opportunities to speak at different conferences.”

“It has been said that a complaint is worth its weight in gold and I could not afford to let this opportunity of having an open channel to customer feedback go past — you could say it is free CRM.”

I would also like to share with readers some other noteworthy blogs that discuss Economic themes. First of all I would like to mention this collection of rankings of Economic Blogs and second, blogs (including their Technorati rankings) such as:
Becker-Posner, Econlog.econlib, Indian Economy, and Knowledge Problem.

It wouldn’t surprise me if Rafael and Co. have similar success.

I found our dean´s comments on the originality and usefulness of blogs to be an eye-opener. I am a “newbie” to this world and as I followed up his blogs on economy I was astounded, as I so often am in the world that opens up before us, by the easy access to information and opinion. To say that this is a revolution is not interesting anymore, but some of us have that impression almost on a daily basis as we are reminded again and again about how effortless global communication has become.
I especially appreciated Santiago´s comments on “carrying” the blog in one´s mind throughout the day, jotting down ideas, data, events that might be relevant. What a revolutionary way to weave a web of knowledge, and to pursue a lifelong education! Long live blogging.

I can’t let pass the occasion to transmit you the rewardinthing that turns out to verify that we agree obout the advantages taht someone can benefit just by being part of an economics blog. I hope it’s not just an especific point and I invite (encourage) you to keep on enriching us with your future participations. (No puedo dejar pasar la ocasión para decir lo gratificante que resulta comprobar que coincidamos en cuanto a las ventajas de las que uno se puede beneficiar por participar en un “blog” de economía. Espero que no sea un hecho puntual y nos gustaría que sigas enriqueciéndonos con futuras participaciones.)
