See the input for this meeting here in this post.

  1. Talked about my invitation-text for the meeting with new media teachers. Most important change is that I ask them for help and I don’t offer help.
  2. With respect to my concepts code tree:
    1. This is going ok; keep in mind to distinguish what I think and what others think.
    2. There are two connections possible to develop from:
      1. Something which is well known/described already and can be brought further.
      2. Something which is not described and can be brought further.
    3. I remarked that it can also be both (see also this post):
      1. Neighborhood storytelling is described and researched rigorously with respect to the real life part of it, but not with respect to the on-line part (new media or social media) of it.
      2. Social media is described rigorously, but not with respect to local story websites.
      3. So these two lines fall under the definition of something well known, but they cross each other in an unknown area.
      4. Interestingly in social media most users are also participants (Facebook) and one can infer that in new media (Wikipedia) most users are consumers, according to the definitions I found on Wikipedia (see this post).
  3. The main explicit and implicit questions for my article are in my working document. Also the aims that I have with it for my PhD-project.
  4. It is a bit tricky to both add information to my working document and on my blog (and in my outline), maybe I should just use my blog and consider it to be my working document. The chronology and titles become more important then, so I will start to put comprehensive titles and dates in the title field of the posts, in order to have a good overview from the index of the printed Feedfabrik-pdfs.
  5. I should remember that there are a view ways to look at this phenomenon: that can be the paragraphs in my article/ chapter.

To do:

  1. Finalize invitation; send to Judith for check.
  2. Start organizing the meeting; invite people informally.
  3. Discuss with Elke and Judith what to do about the co-promotorship.
  4. Go on with the literature!
  5. Share refworks with Judith.

Below the things I have done the last three weeks:

  1. Wrote a summary of the last meeting with Judith with ‘to do’s’. Most of them are touched upon below.
  2. Meeting new media teachers:
    1. Meeting of new media teachers: made a short text that can introduce the meeting, also made a list of invitees.
  3. Wrt first article:
    1. Had a look with Warnar at the hierarchical clustering method in SPSS for my first article. Executed some tests, but have to look further whether this is worthwile.
    2. I still have to make a plan about the changes in the approach and scope that I have to make to the first article.
  4. With respect to theoretical framework (second article / chapter):
    1. Continued my working document getting the core argumentations out of the list of articles (not to be discussed completely! Parts of it are referred to below).
    2. Enlarged the list of relevant articles by these steps.
    3. The text belonging to the remarks below can be found here in this post:
      1. Came to some idea’s of the levels of claims on which reference is made to concepts and theories, grounded in either theorizing, empirical findings or intuition.
      2. Came to a first feeling – based on the close reading summaries – of where the niche is in the existing literature.
      3. Came to a possible model to analyze the literature with systematically, which is further discussed here in this post (point 7).
    4. Made a second version of the outline for the second article. Here is the first and old description of the next article/ chapter.
  5. With respect to the notes about what social problem, question or task on-line collections of local memories might be an answer for, I made these posts for this work in progress.
  6. Haven’t started a diary yet more then the reflections that can be found in this category. But they are not private.
  7. Had a quick look at social media analytics. Registered at the IBM conference but didn’t get a confirmation. Have to look at the powerpoint I received.

For the meeting November 24th

  1. On the HP or the USB there are still some cases that Ben found.
  2. The .isf, matrix.mx4 and conditional.mx4 are organized.
  3. Focus is re-coding the 60 cases, based on the insights that apply to the workable data-matrix.
  4. Reading Descriptive statistics.
  5. Talk with Warnar:

Made some notes on this meeting with Liesbet:

  1. Planning in the post linked to  above is ok. Meetings are added to the calenders.
  2. Add literature search.
  3. I will talk about dimensions with each a variety of aspects.
  4. Made some adjustments on the literature part (I will add them directly to the outline).
  5. Use quotes in the article from the literature or cases.
  6. Explain what I mean by each dimension term (e.g. affordances).
  7. Put audio in with the formats.
  8. An bigger or smaller editorial step is needed after the article is complete.
  9. Talked about the ‘evolution’ dimension ->
    1. I will call that temporal social dynamics.
    2. This means that it also covers the relation between the online memory and the community (consuming/ interactive).
    3. It is a special part of organizational dimensions; it can relate to all the earlier mentioned organizational dimensions.
  10. Therefore I will change the order of dimensions in my literature review:
    1. initiative – aims – methods [1,2,3]
    2. affordances – links [5, 7]
    3. 1 and 2 generate certain type of contents [4]
    4. and this leads to specific temporal social dynamics [6]
  11. Watch out (e.g. with affordances) for being too idiosyncratic (case-sensitive) right now with the field analysis.
  12. Send Liesbet the invitation for October 26th.

  1. Notes on last meeting.
  2. Ben worked on 5 cases. Discussion with him about type of contents see the post here.
  3. I have coded the literature on concrete cases with the top level codes (7 aspects), which really gives me a grip on how present they actually are after the first scanning of the literature. And more important: they give me more grip on sharpening what each codes means (and not).  A good example is affordances connected to architecture of participation. I think this exercise has made it easier to accommodate new literature on concrete cases.
  4. Wrote the first part of the literature. (more added tomorrow-morning).
  5. I led a seminar for the Immersion program of the Unversity of Southern Cailfornia.
  6. Presentation at the Memory of West, see here.
  7. Went to Anymeta lunch and came up with a new idea for a category.
  8. Had a Memory of East meeting with the editors: an interesting collection of minutes from our meeings is developing might become research material).


  1. Research question III, Research methods IV – discuss draft 1st of July (we have to change that date because of audit).
  2. Research results V- discuss ‘light’ 15th of July 09:00.
  3. Parts I – V – discuss draft July 29th 09:00.
  4. September 2nd 09:oo? discuss concept article (including part VI Conclusions/ Discussion) with Liesbet and Joke (co-promotor).
  5. September 30-st: feedback native speaker?
  6. October 12th: final article ready for submission to PhD-Lab commission.
  7. Wait with submission to journals until the feedback of the commission arrives?
