Can someone give me a nice pithy philosophical quote on the tribulations of students aiming to meet academic expectations and yet practice real world online norms – particularly when “norm” isn’t so norm online?
The short story is:
Making academic style references online is a bit of a nuisance [understated].
What do you think? Jump to comments to tell me? 🙂
You may read the long story below. For now, this page will serve as repository for all academic-style references I might use from time to time in this site. Except those in posts tagged Recommended Reading.

The longer sad story:
I found a lovely html solution for allowing readers to jump from a (hyperlinked reference) [#] to a Reference list on the same post or page. However if I placed these references at the foot of (or anywhere in) my page (post) they interfered with the flow of [potential] conversation.
This might turn out easier: Rather than scrolling up and down in my posts to ensure the html is correct; I can open this post in a separate window and switch between it and my topical post while I make references. 🙂
What do you do about references?
