View Full Version : Blogging and Social Media

I was referred to an interesting site, Civilities, Media Structures Research (http://civilities.net/), edited by Jon Garfunkel (http://civilities.net/people/JonGarfunkel). Of interest to me (tonight at least) were the articles, Bloggers: Some Formal Definitions (http://civilities.net/Bloggers-Definitions) and Part 3 (http://civilities.net/TheNewGatekeepers-Values) of a series called The New Gatekeepers (http://civilities.net/TheNewGatekeepers). Part 3 talks about some values associated with blogging that I recognized in my own approach(the whole series is worth reading, IMO). I'm not much of a navel gazer, but his articles did get me thinking.

Can anyone else provide some good links to thoughtful discussions about blogging? Or care to comment on Jon's?

I'm not sure how some people feel about About.com, but their section on weblogs (http://weblogs.about.com), in my expierence, have provided interesting news and tips about blogging.
