Comments for Nicola's E-learning and Digital Cultures Blog http://digitalculture-ed.net/nicolao Part of the MSc in E-learning at the University of Edinburgh Thu, 01 Apr 2010 20:49:57 +0100 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.8.4 hourly 1 Comment on My ethnography is live! by Nicola Osborne http://digitalculture-ed.net/nicolao/2009/11/08/my-ethnography-is-live/comment-page-1/#comment-185 Nicola Osborne Thu, 01 Apr 2010 20:49:57 +0000 http://digitalculture-ed.net/nicolao/2009/11/08/my-ethnography-is-live/#comment-185 Patricia, I'm so pleased you found my ethnography - thank you so much for commenting and letting me know! I can imagine it must be quite weird reading my observations so I'm particularly grateful that you've filled in some of the blanks. I am intrigued at how the LiveJournal community and Twitter activity interacts. I used to be a LiveJournal blogger so it's nice to see that it carries on being a lively communal space. I undertook the ethnography for a module I was doing for my MSc in eLearning so the the day I took the all the Tweets from was fairly quiet just because of the time I had available for the work (a few weeks in the middle of the module). I was on Twitter the night the Ianto death aired and I was watching (and joining in) the angry Tweets myself - that was what triggered my interest in covering Torchwood tweets in the first place. With that in mind I hope the campaign has some positive effects - I haven't heard what the future of Torchwood is but I would love to see it (and Ianto - who knows how but it's sci-fi so there are all sorts of possibilities) return. Thank you again for reading my ethnography and leaving your comments. You've made my day! - Nicola. Patricia,

I’m so pleased you found my ethnography – thank you so much for commenting and letting me know!

Comment on My ethnography is live! by gravitule http://digitalculture-ed.net/nicolao/2009/11/08/my-ethnography-is-live/comment-page-1/#comment-184 gravitule Thu, 01 Apr 2010 20:18:37 +0000 http://digitalculture-ed.net/nicolao/2009/11/08/my-ethnography-is-live/#comment-184 Just discovered your ethnography. It's interesting and fun but at the same time a little odd to read about your assumptions on me. By the way I am from France as stated in my profile and not in the UK. Not many French on twitter, that's why I mainly use it to vent re Torchwood and not to talk with friends (except the campaign fellows now) because all my french friends are more on facebook. I opened this account July 10 because I was looking for reactions and could see that a lot were on twitter. It's only late in August that I started campaigning because I was upset with the way RTD reacted and with the reply I got from the BBC. Initially I came also from Live Journal by the way. Now you know everything! And I changed my Twitter account. It's now HW308_gravitule. The old one got filtered because of #Ianto spamming at some point! Maybe just one critic: you choose an extremely quite day to do the study. Hence this doesn't show well the connexions between the twitt people. Patricia Just discovered your ethnography.
