A Conversation on Blog Research
Elijah Wright of Indiana University contacted me earlier this week about my blog research post, and raised some interesting issues. I replied to him via email, but asked him to consider posting his comments on his blog, so that the conversation could include others.
Happily, he did exactly that. Our email conversation is now available verbatim on his blog. I would encourage those of you interested in research in this area to read the three messages in order: his first message to me, my response to him, and his follow-up.
In the interest of pulling the threads together, I’d encourage people to comment here rather than on the individual messages, since that will reduce fragmentation of the discussion. (One of the great weaknesses of blog-based conversations is the difficulty in tracking cross-blog conversations effectively…I know that’s something Lilia has written about).
Thanks, Elijah, for being willing to make this a public discussion.
