Observing and Quoting Newsgroup Messages. Edition No. 1
VDM Publishing House, May 2010, Pages: 248
Observing and Quoting Newsgroup Messages looks to understand the sense-making practices of those communicating through the text- based computer medium Newgroups. In addition, by analyzing a group that discusses ethnomethodology, the methodological approach taken by the study, the key conceptual component of reflexivity foregrounded through application of the general finding. Essentially the work argues for a pragmatic form of applied methodology that circumvents academic disagreements. Observing and Quoting Newsgroup Messages will be interesting to those interested in computer mediated communication (CMC) and by implication new forms of CMC commonly referred to as Web 2.0.
