Watching social networks
Here’s the Digital Ethnography project at Kansas State University, explaining it’s work on YouTube to the YouTube community. Their blog is here, and it seems like a project worth keeping an eye on. I’ve been so busy this week that I completely missed the Danah Boyd rant on MySpace and narcissism. I can’t really relate to this – maybe I feel ill-equipped to comment on cultural life in the US, but I’m just interested in the take-up and the identity performances on MySpace in the UK. I can’t get that bothered about it, but then I’m biased – I think this is OK – or am I just an ageing liberal?
