WA Blogging Lecture
Lecture: Bonnie Nardi, “Blogging for the Rest of Us”
11th Jun 2004 - 12:30 PM
For the last year Dr. Nardi has been studying individually authored blogs and political blogs. She will discuss why people blog, why she believes blogging is like having a private radio station, and how democracy will be impacted by blogs and related Internet tools. The research was conducted in two milieux: blogging in and around Stanford University, and Burlington, Vermont where one of her students studied the use of blogs and other Internet tools in the Howard Dean campaign. Bonnie A. Nardi is an anthropologist in the School of Information and Computer Science at UC Irvine. She is the author of “A Small Matter of Programming:Perspectives on End User Computing” (MIT Press, 1993) editor of “Context and Consciousness: Activity Theory and Human-Computer Interaction” (MIT Press, 1996), and co-author of “Information Ecologies: Using Technology with Heart” (MIT Press, 1999).
