Participation, Remediation, Bricolage: Considering Principal Components of a Digital Culture

Mark Deuze
2006 The Information Society  
This digital culture has emergent properties with roots in both online and offline phenomena, with links to trends and developments predating the World Wide Web, yet having an immediate impact and particularly  ...  In this essay the emergence of a digital culture as amplified and accelerated by the popularity of networked computers, multiple-user software, and Internet is investigated in terms of its principal components  ...  This is, in short, a way to recognize a pattern by considering case studies in online journalism, open publishing, and blogging, which pattern is then analyzed in terms of how it reproduces (and thus privileges  ...

The Flow of Digital News in a Network of Sources, Authorities, and Hubs

Matthew S. Weber, Peter Monge
2011 Journal of Communication  
Kleinberg's authority-hub model is extended by introducing sources of information in the network.  ...  Significant support was found for a Source-Authority-Hub model, which shows the source, directionality, routing, and destination of news information flow through a network of authorities and hubs.  ...  Note 1 Kleinberg's algorithm focused on patterns of search and information indexing, whereas the SAH model proposed in this research tests the explicit presence of sources, authorities, and hubs.  ...

Users of Open Source Software - How Do They Get Help?

Vandana Singh, Michael B. Twidale, David M. Nichols
2009 2009 42nd Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
The implications for socio-technical design are considered, exploring how help requests and discussions can be used to improve future help-giving, documentation and interface and functionality redesign  ...  This paper presents the types of discussions that occur, the types of questions asked and the type of responses that are given.  ...  Online technical help predates the current growth of open-source software, and can be seen in various Usenet news forums for a range of technical areas aimed at both novices and expert users.  ...

Civil Society and Online Political Discourse

Itai Himelboim
2010 Communication Research  
Patterns of participation and attention attraction follow a power-law degree distribution-a highly skewed distribution-as is expected in large networks.  ...  Furthermore, analysis shows that these patterns are dependent on group size: The larger a group, the more skewed is its distribution.  ...  Examining data sources, nonhubs posted 259 links to sources elsewhere on the web, sometimes with more than one link in a message: 27.41% to traditional media (compared to 60% in hubs' messages); 24.71%  ...

On the predictive validity of various corpus-based frequency norms in L2 English lexical processing

Xiaocong Chen, Yanping Dong, Xiufen Yu
2018 Behavior Research Methods  
To bridge the gap, in the present study we took English as a case in point and compared the predictive power of a large set of corpus-based frequency norms for the performance of an L2 English visual lexical  ...  Although replicated in both low-and high-proficiency L2 English learners, these patterns were not exactly the same as those found in LDT data from native English speakers.  ...  The authors also thank Jiadan Lin, Fei Li, Fei Zhong and Hongming Zhao for helping recruit the participants and collect the data and James Campion for proofreading the final draft.  ...

2009 Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication  
messages, and what is the source of that content?  ...  We conclude that the flow of information from the content creators to the readers and writers continues to be mediated by a few individuals who act as filters and amplifiers.  ...  This is encouraging news, because the range of sources of information that discussion catalysts link to or copy from is broad and includes traditional news sources along with alternative sources such as  ...

Dynamics of conversations

Ravi Kumar, Mohammad Mahdian, Mary McGlohon
2010 Proceedings of the 16th ACM SIGKDD international conference on Knowledge discovery and data mining - KDD '10  
Is there a common model that is followed in human communication? In this work we explore these questions in detail. By considering three different social datasets, namely, Usenet groups, Yahoo!  ...  Groups, and Twitter, we analyze the structure of conversations in each of these datasets.  ...  There has been empirical analysis of the topological patterns of cascades in various contexts, such as recommendation networks [24, 19] and blog posts [23] .  ...

Exploring blog archives with interactive visualization

Indratmo, Julita Vassileva, Carl Gutwin
2008 Proceedings of the working conference on Advanced visual interfaces - AVI '08  
Second, a blog should utilize social interaction history preserved in the archive to ease exploration and navigation.  ...  Browsing a blog archive is currently not well supported. Users cannot gain an overview of a blog easily, nor do they receive adequate support for finding potentially interesting entries in the blog.  ...  Chin and Chignell consider such links more explicit in suggesting a social relationship among the bloggers.  ...

Interactive online journals and individualization

Paul Hodkinson
2007 New Media & Society  
Readers should note that although it focuses upon LiveJournal as a form of 'social software', as distinct from 'serious' forms of blogging, the paper was written and accepted prior to much of the explosion  ...  , rather than group-centred patterns of sociability.  ...  By focusing on such a transition, the research presented here moves beyond a tendency identified by Herring and colleagues for analysts to examine blogging somewhat in isolation from its links and connections  ...

Free Legal Advice on the Internet

Peter B. Maggs
2006 International Journal of Legal Information : Official Publication  
For those few legal systems that I know something about, I also have considered the question, "How good is the advice?"  ...  On numerous online discussion forums in various countries, ordinary people pose specific legal questions and both ordinary people and lawyers answer them.  ...  , like those for the practice of law in the United States, could see voluntary quality controls, like those common in open source software development; or could see it free, like the world of blogs.  ...
