Zen is not some kind of excitement, but concentration on our usual everyday routine. -Shunryu Suzuki
I haven’t read her whole argument, Identity Production in a Networked Culture: Why Youth Heart MySpace, but I’m glad that people are taking notice of the work that academics are doing on this subject. The Internet and the effect it has had on our minds is not a novel thing anymore. One scholarly area which has gotten a lot of attention this year is the study of Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games or MMORPG for short. Apparently, much can be learned about economics and sociology by studying the habits of players in games like Everquest and World of Warcraft.
My feelings are that we have only begun to understand the Internet. Everything is worthy of discussion. Besides, in a few short months, I will be a graduate with a Masters in Library and Information Science, and I NEED SOMETHING TO DO TO GET PAID!
Have an opinion? Post it. If not here, somewhere.
