Blogging and the classroom

Over at there is an interesting discussion into the ways blogging can play an important role in fieldwork. This blog is part of my field notes, thats for sure. They argue that the use of a blog for reflecting on the field works to stimulate interest and to increase collaboration with other researchers.

Linked to that great link is a discussion on how blogging your field notes equals “open access field notes“. Well your reading mine. Enjoy 🙂

Prof. Forte of is also getting his students to blog. I’m taking his cyberethnography class – and while all the students in the class are encouraged to write a blog, they are not necessarily encouraged to make it openly available. (for privacy and maybe liability reasons?)
