I'm Crowdsourcing My Book, Flipped

A Penny for Your Brain Fodder

by: danah boyd

My blog is boring these days. Most of my writing energy is being spent on my dissertation. And I promise, none of you want to hear details of how I fine-tune my methodology chapter. I can't even keep you entertained with outrageous tales of sordid trysts because, well, there aren't any. Hell, I barely leave the house.
