Anthropology at it's finest.Tom says.... In my research in the virtual world Second Life, I apply the same ethnographic methods I have used in my work in Indonesia to examine virtual culture, as well as to explore how ethnographic methods much change for online contexts. In this virtual world my avatar (Tom Bukowski) has an office, "Ethnographia," which you can visit within Second Life (it is located in Dowden, click here for a link). As Tom Bukowski, I study cybersociality in Second Life using participant observation, interviews, focus groups, and the analysis of texts ranging from newsletters to blogs. WOW!.this should be interesting.
