I’m going to be making a presentation to a special interest group at the American Educational Research Association’s upcoming conference.
My topic? Blogging in post-Katrina New Orleans.
My idea is to recount five or so of the biggest stories to emerge from the local blogosphere since the flooding of the city in 2005. I mean “stories” in the broadest possible sense, not just investigative journalism or any other narrow conception of the term.
So I’ve compiled my list, but I thought this might be a fun game to play — and also a helpful reality check for me. What are the top five stories in your opinion? I will share mine in due time but I’d really like to see what people say independently first.
I would love to hear your take, and as I said it will help me as I prepare my talk.
