Goodbye Link Roundup, Hello Furl Feedroll

Posted on Fri, Feb 29, 2008 at 2:44 PM by Andrew Chadwick

It's been a while since I posted one of my supposedly fortnightly link roundups. Aside from the fact that Christopher Boerl, a PhD student, has pointed out that the word 'fortnightly' does not travel well outside the UK, it was cumbersome to do and that meant I didn't do it.

No surprises there, but we were intrigued by how readily O'Reilly's technology-centric themes could feed into broader conceptual ideas and examples of value to social scientists. Here's what we came up with - posted on the New Political Communication Unit blog. We hope you find it useful, and, dare we say it, that you might like to add your comments...
