  BROG papers

Elijah Wright lists papers by BROG (blog research on genre) group:

I'm posting these here for convenience's sake - and because it is really hard for people outside of our smallish research group to track what we've been up to.

Herring, Susan C., Kouper, Inna, Paolillo, John, Scheidt, Lois Ann, Tyworth, Michael, Welsch, Peter, Wright, Elijah, Yu, Ning. (2005).

In Proceedings of the Thirty-seventh Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS-38) (Ed.), Los Alamitos: IEEE Press.

Just a few comments:

1. From my perspective the group is not that small :)

2. Links to the papers are missing (most of them are online!)... I may come back and add links to those I know, but don't have time at the moment.

3. Would love to read the HICSS 2005 paper... Especially as our own paper goes to the same track :) (It's on weblog conversations; conditionally accepted. I missed the moment to share draft; it doesn't make sense now as we are reworking it, but let me know if you don't want to wait.)

  Blogademia - weblog research blog by Scott Nowson

Another weblog research blog - Blogademia by Scott Nowson (via Torill Mortensen). Scott is doing PhD research on weblogs. More specific:

What am I doing with blogs?

As I said above, I am interested in studying personal blogs. Blogs which are, for the most part, the thoughts and words of one person. More specifically, I am studying writing style.

Writing style in blogs is something that has been discussed informally, in a number of places, mostly, unsurprisingly, in blogs.

I am going to be looking for trends in style, as the relate to the character of the author. By style I mean linguistic features such as those used by the stylistics community for authorship attribution, such as sentence length, word bigrams and trigrams, and parts-of-speech. And by character, I mean just that.

To be even more specific: Scott is doing an experiment analysing one month's posts by native English speaking bloggers. Of course it's a pity that non-native speakers are excluded :)

Curious to know more about the analysis method... Could be interesting to combine with things that Sigmund can do.
