online manifestation

Blog assignment for Wednesday:

As we discussed in class, find online manifestation(s) of your research topic. Internet search such as google.com, google.nl, and technorati.com will get you part of the way. However, you'll likely need to do a little virtual ethnography to find the core of the interaction and its boundaries. For example, if you find a relevant blog/forum/website, follow its links and pay attention to the context of the link. Depending on your area of interest, you may need to narrow or broaden your question to locate and/or delineate the online component.

on your blog:

1) post the relevant links
2) briefly describe what you found and what you learned about your topic
3) suggest some ways in which you could analyze the online manifestation of your topic
