Anne Helmond will be blogging back from Blog08 for us, with a focus on the online journalism aspects.
You’ll be able to follow Anne’s updates on this blog, or directly at this tag.
Blog08 is a one day only event/conference for all things blog, taking place in Amsterdam with the rather exciting theme of ‘Rockstars of the Web’.
Anne Helmond is a New Media lecturer at the Mediastudies department at the University of Amsterdam.
Her thesis entitled ‘Blogging for Engines. Blogs under the Influence of Software-Engine Relations’ aims to contribute to the existing research on blogs and blogging by framing it from a software-engine perspective and describing a different role of the blogger in this relationship.
She continues her research on blogs and blogging with the Digital Methods Initiative at the University of Amsterdam. She blogs at annehelmond.nl.
