that I’ve just started reading Fans, Bloggers, and Gamers: exploring participatory culture by Henry Jenkins, whose blog I should probably also be reading. So far it’s fascinating. Also, it has the best cover on an academic book that I’ve seen in some time.
In case you don’t click through to the LibraryThing link above, the cover features a photo of a Stormtrooper investigating a display of Star Wars figures. As my friend Alex would have said back in high school, while flailing his arms in a particular way, “SUPER WIN!”
