KCF: I hope you don’t mind me cross-posting this entry.

Categories: More stuff to read | Comments Off on Some rambling thoughts on sharing

In Share This!, Deanna Zandt discusses the important role that sharing (particularly in the form of sharing stories/information/experiences) plays in social networks and social justice. At one point (I haven’t quite figured out how to cite kindle books yet…anyone?), she writes: …we’re not just consuming information; we’re sharing it, immediately and constantly. I like how […]

It’s funny how you mention the kitchen table (side note – I like the blog you found, it looks like an awesome project). In my methods chapter of my dissertation I actually re-visioned it as a discussion around the various types of intimacies that emerge while doing oral histories in the context in which I […]
