Blogs for NMS Project

My students in New Media Studies are doing a collaborative weblog review project coinciding with Jill Walker's upcoming visit (Dec. 3rd). I've been trying to put together a list of blogs that represents the breadth of approaches that people are taking to the medium, and ranging from student blogs to those of professional researchers and writers to group blogs, from comic blogs to political blogs to confessional blogs. The next couple of weeks are going to be blogomania in New Media Studies.

In Monday's class we're going to do a bit of transcontinental iChatting with Professor Walker about her weblog definition and bounce around some ideas for the project. A tentative list of blogs that students will choose from for the assignment:
