NY Times article profiles social software researcher Dana Boyd

Danah Boyd, a completely hip chick – geek, sociologist,academic – who blogs over on misbehaving.net was profiled in a NY Times article this past Saturday. Danah is an academic who is very involved in social software and is putting her academic eye on phenomena like Friendster. NY Times says “Her irrepressible observations have made her a social-network guru for the programmers and venture capitalists who swarm around Friendster and its competitors.“ Not only is it very cool to see Danah in this type of spotlight, but it says a lot about what is going on in social software/blogging/etc. that profiles of this type are featured in non-technical venues. Though it was the technology section. Thanks to Liz Lawley for making sure we didn’t miss this.
