Generally speaking I support the idea that academic researchers should engage with public debate. If we have evidence that could help inform policy and wider debates then it's right that we should publicise that beyond our own narrow academic communities. Blogging is one highly effective way of doing that. But every so often I read something on an academic blog that makes me pause and question whether more blogging will end up improving the quality of public debate in the long run.
