Weblogs upon Weblogs

posted 9 Apr 2004, 12PM | 5 Comments

My friend David (of 15 years or so, gosh) has plunged deep into graduate studies at Rutgers, including a course on Social Informatics. As part of a project for tthis course, David is maintaning a weblog to discuss his research as he explores the effect of weblogs on various social activities, such as politics, privacy, scholarly communication, and librarianship.

As you can see from the sources and rescources linked in his sidebar, he's taking a pretty rigorous academic plunge into the study of weblogs, far beyond the usual meta meta ranty blog chatter. I hope his posts get some conversation going.

In addition to school and his zesty job working in a Princeton library, David also writes and performs music in Unbelievable Luck, a band of rock sincerity and indie soundscapes. They'll be playing out in NYC on May 9th. It's a long way from the bugging out to DJ Jazzy Jeff/ Fresh Prince records we did together in sixth grade... but hell, we're still "Too Damn Hyped".

thanks. and yes... yours. actually, i should probably tell you that i was kind of joking when i asked that, but i guess it didn't come across. the idea was that it would be funny to ask a question whose answer was so obvious that no one would ever seriously ask such a question. or something like that. notwithstanding all the preceding, i hadn't stumbled on that "About" page yet, so i actually did enjoy reading it. as as long as i'm doing this long chatty post, i'd like to confess that my name is not really frank.
