My PhD Blog featured in woman’s magazine July 15, 2009

Posted by Malene Charlotte Larsen in Blogging, Media coverage.

More than 1.5 year ago I gave an interview to a Danish woman’s magazine called Femina about keeping a research blog. Last week the interview was finally published as part of a special theme on blogging. It’s a really small piece (and the article was even shortened in the end), but it can be read from the journalist’s own website here (in Danish – page 6).

I think keeping a research blog is an interesting methodological approach. In my dissertation I have written a small section about research blogging and how it affects my research and empirical data. When I have more time I will  write a post about that. I the meantime, I can recommend this paper  from 2002 by Jill Walker and Torill Mortensen: “Blogging thoughts: personal publication as an online research tool“.

Talking about Facegroups groups on TV January 13, 2009

Creating or joining a Facebook group in order to publicly state your opinion about something is the most easy thing in the world. In Denmark, whenever specific court cases are heavily mentioned in the news, people start creating Facebook groups discussing the sentencing (which they almost always think is too low).

tv2_1201092Yesterday several groups (for instance this one) were created about the sentecing in a child abouse case. I was asked to comments on the groups in the news on Danish TV2. You can see my interviews here and here (but only in Danish).

Basically, I say that I think the news media are partly to blame for the groups being created, because they report so much on the specific cases in the first place. And of course, it is self-perpetuating when the news media then report on the groups themselves.

I just returned home after a long, but really interesting day at the “UNG 2.0″-conference in Næstved arranged by the The Danish Library Association.

More than 120 people (mostly librarians) attended the conference which was filled with visions for the library of the future with room for young people.

The Danish news station TV2 East covered the event and I gave a small interview after my presentation.

Today my colleague Anders Albrechtslund and I hit the frontpage. The Danish newspaper Nyhedsavisen interviewed us about Google Maps Street View and how youngsters would relate to the surveillance. Read the article here.
