Meta: Successful anthropology conference in Washington, DC

| | Comments (0)

I've just come back from a very enjoyable time at the American Anthropological Association annual meeting in Washington, D.C. I had to attend three national committees (Commission on Minority Issues in Anthropology; Long Range Planning; and, Committtee on Ethics) as well as the SOLGA Board Meeting and a Mentoring Workshop, so I didn't get to as many panels as I would have liked to, but I'd still like to say that I found MuseumFreak's ethnography of blogging panel very interesting.

In previous years, I've found the "CMC" (Computer Mediated Communication) panels to be boring and trite ("Wow, you can be anyone you want in a MUD!"... yawn!) but Kathy and Dana and some of the other panels hit on some core features of LiveJournal and other social blogging software products.
