Bookmarked Self-expression, DIY skills acquisition and connectivity: Domain Grrls creating personal homepages at the turn of the millennium by Naomi Civins
I ran across Dr. Naomi Civins’s dissertation while citation chaining works about connective ethnography, via Google Scholar. I read the title and thought, “Wait, that’s me! I’m a Domain Grrl!” Then I checked the text for a definition to be sure:

“Domain Grrls were girls who created personal homepages during the late 1990s and early 2000s and built meaningful social relationships in the process.”

Yes, that’s me!

Based on some quick research, Dr. Civins’s coined term “Domain Grrl” hasn’t had broad reach, which kind of makes sense because Domain Grrls aren’t really a thing anymore and she didn’t coin it until 2016. But I’m excited to read her dissertation later.
