Ready for Stranger Things Night at the DBAP!
We describe the groups we have studied as “online affinity networks” to distinguish them from long-standing affinity groups and networks that have predated the online world. We call them “online” affinity networks as a shorthand to distinguish them from affinity networks that are primarily grounded in place-based activities and organizations, and we are not implying that they are not “real,” tied to face-to-face interactions, or embedded in physical infrastructures.
I’m curious about the distinction in terms, especially as the book references Gee’s work. Time to get in touch with the authors!
Returning to my reading roots today with my desert island book. It’s worth noting that as so many book covers are, this one is whitewashed.
I don’t expect it will have aged well, but I’m going to give it a try anyway.
