Keywords & more references

Wordle: ma thesis

So I’ve submitted my thesis proposal recently. While procrastinating, I stumbled upon this website that lets you make word clouds out of a piece of text. To try it out I entered my proposal to see what keywords it would drag out. Interesting to see what the ‘project’ looks like visually.

At the moment, I’m preparing interview questions and have to set up a way to do an Internet ethnography of the organisations I will be using as case studies. But as I’m sure most post-grad students do in the process of researching, I’ve stumbled upon more interesting sources to add to my literature review.

Here’s part 2 of references on technology, social movements, feminism and social media:
