New to Me: technosociology

Two of my colleagues in the Business & Social Science division turned me on to this blog, technosociology.org by Zeynep Tufekci, a professor with the Information School and Sociology department at UNC Chapel Hill.

Wonderful, thoughtful posts exploring the intersections of technology and sociology.  I’m teaching a library session for an English composition course focused on technology and society, and I’m hoping to use some of these posts as an example of what a substantive, academic web source looks like.

Found this one fascinating: Is the Social Web Less Surprising? The Internet of People and Social Flâneurism.  The students are reading Eli Pariser’s The Filter Bubble, so it seems like a nice fit.
