Postmodern Research Evaluation? | 1 of ?

This will be the first is a series of posts tagged ‘postmodern research evaluation’ — a series meant to be critical and normative, expressing my own, subjective, opinions on the question.

Before I launch into any definitions, take a look at this on ‘Snowball Metrics‘. Reading only the first few pages should help orient you to where I am coming from. It’s a place from where I hope to prevent such an approach to metrics from snowballing — a good place, I think, for a snowball fight.

Read the opening pages of the snowball report. If you cannot see this as totalizing — in a very bad way — then we see things very differently. Still, I hope you read on, my friend. Perhaps I still have a chance to prevent the avalanche.
