AOIR 8.1.1

First panel of the day, on sexuality and gender online; several excellent papers. I’m particularly compelled by Michele White’s exploration of the heteronormative pressures of eBay’s official discourses and the ways that individual sellers wind up rupturing the official narratives of community, and by Eszter Hargittai and Gina Walejko’s study of gender differences in online creative media production and sharing.

Wireless access here is good; I’ll hope to be posting more throughout the day.
