neighborhoods online and in the news
Over the last couple weeks there has been a burst of news items on how neighborhoods are using the Internet to communicate. The most interesting is this article from the New York Times on how a “Brooklyn Blog Helps Lead to Drug Raid”. There was also an article in the Globe and Mail about an apartment building that is using Facebook to communicate, and an article about the opposite of communicating, from CNN how to publicly shame your neighbors: Annoying neighbors? Rant about 'em online.

Communication, IT, & Media @ the 2008 ASA Meeting
As part of what is becoming an annual ritual, I have put together a spreadsheet of papers that relate to communication, information technologies, and media more generally, that will be presented at the ASA meeting (Boston, Aug 1-4). Both lists exclude papers presented at the CITASA pre-conference. This year’s list contains over 165 papers, a significant increase over the 106 papers that I identified last year. Perhaps optimistically, I would like to think that the 50%+ increase in papers represents the revival of communication studies within sociology.
