THANKS TO PATRICK: just back from meeting Patrick. Had a really interesting chat about the ways in which blogging [and the Internet more broadly] have impacted political activism. One thing I am beginning to appreciate is the way in which writing pundit blogs ties into reading newspapers and other news media.

THANKS TO PETE: yesterday met up with Pete to chat about his blog, which I like very much. Pete showed me his L'Espion digital camera, which is tiny and kind of cool [check out his photogrids]. Go look.

THANKS TO ANNA: just back from meeting with Anna. Another interesting chat. I apologise for making a right pig of myself and eating a flaky almond croissant throughout the interview.

THANKS TO ADIL: just back from interesting chat with Adil, another pundit blogger. I appreciated him coming down to London and found the conversation fascinating. The notions of a blogosphere and anglosphere emerge again as categories of place, partially mediated by the Internet, and also by the notion of a muslim global community. Thanks again.

WHEN I WAS CRUEL: always wanted to like Elvis Costello music but never quite made it. Now I can; this album is fab.

THANKS TO BRIAN: last night had a fascinating chat with Brian of Libertarian Samizdata. It was particularly interesting to get the perspective of a long-term political activist on how blogging links to the tradition of printed political pamphlets. The world of pundit blogging is certainly taking my interest.

I AM WHO?: turns out the kind of blogger I am most like is this one:

You are an AKMA.

You stand out from the crowd because of deeply held beliefs in the unknown.

You ponder endlessly and treat everyone, even fucknozzles, with respect.

WWAD (what would AKMA do) guides your actions.

Take the What Blogging Archetype Are You test at GAZM.org

but who is he? I have never heard of him. American? Oh well.

My blog, my blog on blogging

Me
I am a social anthropologist working at the University of Surrey, but conducting research on the culture of web logging in London. Since August 2001, I have been reading web logs and interviewing members of the UK blogging community. AnthroBlog is first and foremost my web log, but it also a site where I hope to explore ongoing issues and themes of fieldwork. I welcome any comments or inquiries from UK web loggers interested in being involved.contact me
