In keeping with the highly interdisciplinary nature of the MLS program, I'll be broadening my paper to include material from such fields as UI Design, Information Visualization, and Chaos Theory. In essence, I'll be looking for answers to Social Software's pressing questions where ever I can find them, but it social psychology or otherwise.
I think this will make my paper more exploratory than prescriptive, which is a good thing considering the time I've allotted myself! Plus, it allows me to include cool tidbits like Thinkmaps and SmartMaps. Meme Theory is also fair game, which is good news since I had planned to include it anyway, even though it's not technically a social psych thang.
Next week, I hope to much of the introduction & lit review written. Cross your fingers...Posted by pond0009 at September 22, 2004 2:20 PM
