The Problem with Literature Reviews

George Siemens

As any student knows, a literature review is the starting point for almost any article or essay. When at the level of writing a thesis or dissertation, a review of literature is critical. However, I have issues with reviews. Almost every paper started with a literature review and then moved into the author’s ideas/research. A literature review is a context forming activity. Put another way, a literature review is a controlling, heritage-preserving system.

Moreover, this is a good thing.

Wolf of Wall Street: a review

David Weinberger

String them together and you have a fairly predictable narrative arc, and a thematic point ( [SPOILER] Greed is bad) that isn’t going to change anyone’s mind. I saw it on New Year’s Eve and liked it a lot. But, I think it’s best taken as a series of brilliant set pieces. But the set pieces are incredibly well done because Scorcese. And Leo Dicaprio is just great in it. Some people are upset because the movie doesn’t condemn the behavior it depicts. Yikes.

Reviewing "The Social Network" - Constructing Grand Narrative

John Hagel

We live in the midst of a social revolution and this movie represents the effort of mass media to make sense of the changes going on around them. On the other side of the fence, we have the movie reviewers in the mainstream media who have, almost without exception, been ecstatic about the movie.    In fact, the website Metacritic indicates that the movie now has a metascore of 97, based on 40 movie reviewers, the highest score of any movie currently showing.
