An interesting article in today's Chronicle asks details Noah Wardrip-Fruin's attempts to couple the peer review process with comments from a blog where he will be posting excerpts of the book. His editor at MIT is (probably wisely) not allowing the book to go without a typical peer review process, but that this experiment is taking place at all suggests how far we've come in digital scholarship.
(Cross-posted from the Emory English Blog...but I thought it applied to both. What it really makes me want to do is start playing with WordPress so I can use CommentPress on a blog. JBJ: This is your chance!)
