  Weblog research challenges

This is a note to myself (because I woke up thinking :); to be expanded later.

Weblog research challenges:

  • Moving target
  • Sociotecnical system (technology and practices of using it evolving together)
  • Heterogenity: technology, practices
  • Subcultures without clear borders (lots of "fussy logic" :)
  • Population is unknown --> sampling
  • "Teasing data" - lots of out there in public, but getting it is a challenge (distributed, heterogenious formats)
  • Interpreting data - underlying practices are oftenunclear (invisible that matters!)
  • Bloggers as researchers --> metablogging that changes practices
  • Weblog researchers who blog --> changing the system
  • Ethics: informed concent (unknown population :), involvement, public vs. personal...
  • Complexity :)
