Contentious : Connection Age

Amy Gahran rings my bell in her blog post here about The Connection Age.

I wrote quite extensively about this in my research in the late 90s on virtual communities. My thesis was an exploration of the interconnections between the on and the offline.

The thesis about that intersection between the on and the off was built around themes of (inter)connectedness, difference, relationships and articulations. Sounds like academic bollocks at first glance. But Amy’s post brought it all back into focus for me in the context of how web technologies are weaving their way into our everyday lives.
