TheirSpace - Danah Boyd - Concept Trucking

In TheirSpace and Power2.0, Abstract Dynamics provides an interesting counterpoint to Boyd's essay Friendster lost steam. Is MySpace just a fad? (which I linked to in a previous post). Both of their posts are really just sketches of a possible rejoinder more than full scale critiques, but useful nonetheless given the EXTREMELY uncritical acceptance of her work. She is engaged in important and thoughtful research, but we would be served better if the legions of bloggers citing her essays engaged in some form of criticality rather than ceding to her default authority in the matter. Thank you, Abstract Dynamics.
