A few links to pass along, regarding connections between new technology and academic research.
- The Chronicle’s Wired Campus blog last week reported on academic uses for Google Earth, such as a map of county-by-county election results, dating back to 1840.
- Alice Marwick has posted an annotated bibliography of academic research on LiveJournal. (HT: danah boyd, who has also compiled a bibliography on social network research)
Online social networks are one of my (many) casual interests. Any other links on this topic that I should know about?
