The bursty evolution of my swollen fingers
Sunday, December 10
Finally finished the Discourse History expanded-and-hyperlinked cite for "On the Bursty Evolution of Blogspace
." The major discourse articles I haven't gotten to are nowhere near as oft-cited.
I was definitely right in thinking that there was a whole other discourse community here: for the most part, these was very little overlap between the technology types who cite this article (Japan is huge here: kudos to all those theorists who added English titles and abstracts to their articles) and the kind of researcher who's citing people like reigning queen of the blog theorists
The tech stuff is over my head, but there's enough plain language to make Kumar et al.'s article worth a look. At the very least, they've got the data to substantiate the common perception of a post-Blogger flowering, and in this case, if I understand them right, they're not just talking about users but of an increase in interlinking.
Alles Wird Gut
