Into the Blogosphere: Rhetoric, community and culture of weblogs

Something I was going to add here for a long time – Into the Blogosphere: Rhetoric, community and culture of weblogs, an online collection of essays edited by Laura Gurak, Smiljana Antonijevic, Laurie Johnson, Clancy Ratliff, and Jessica Reyman.

Next to the great content it’s a good example of innovative academic publishing: peer-reviewed, online, with categories, comments and trackbacks for each essay, released under Creative Commons… It’s in my reading list (after I finish most important things in my writing list 😉
