Blogs and the City

A bit of a late notice, but: Jia Lin will be defending her doctoral dissertation “Blogs and the City: Weblogs as Indicators of Urban Culture in America” tomorrow, Tuesday, December 13, at 2 pm in Baldy 553 on the north campus of the University at Buffalo. I am her committee chair, and other members include George Barnett and Pauline Cheong. Ms Lin will be defending via web chat, using Skype and Festoon, which may be a first for the department. We tried it with a Masters defense last week, but over a wireless connection that dropped quite a few packets. Hopefully, things will go a bit more smoothly this time around!

The defense is open to the public. If you are in Buffalo and interested in blogging research, stop by.
