Advisor meeting notes #1
Saturday, February 4
-There's a third way, not rhetorical aspects but the higher-order "narrative structure," that I can probably use to taxonomize my way down to diary weblog (or whatever I end up with!).
-The issue of "success" is problematic. I don't think so, personally, but I can make roughly the same argument without saying something that smacks of the normative.
-Mimi was right, I still have some wriggle room with my corpus. I asked the Bloggies guy for the top nomination-getters for the 2005 and 2006 awards in my category, figuring that was a less distorted metric, and it might happily exclude some of the more problematic or annoying blogs. The end purpose of having "finalists" has little to do with my project.
Alles Wird Gut
