Coding research and printing reports that will be presented next week at Digital Generations: Children, young people and new media

Line drawing of a women at a desk circa 1900I spent today coding adolescent blogs in preparation for my presentation next week at the Digital Generations: Children, Young People and New Media Conference. Has been a long and interesting day while I read the entire front page of the adolescent blogs in this dataset. I am coding for demographic information, narrator information (perspective, tone, and reliability), and type of audience addressed in each post. My research for this presentation is looking for a pattern of types of audience that are addressed within the same blog. I have a three more blogs to code out in the morning and then I can start crunching numbers, its a very small dataset so the numbers should fall together fairly quickly. Then I can plug it all into a PowerPoint presentation and I'm good to go.

The BBC News World Service had an article today titled Parents 'under-estimate' net risks, about Sonia Livingstone and Magdalena Bober's work UK Children Go Online: Surveying the experiences of young people and their parents. The report will be presented at Digital Generations and at AoIR so I printed out a copy of both the 2004 and 2003 works to read before the conference. It's always is a good thing to have a question to ask at conferences so you can introduce yourself. Which is something I need to do at this conference. I'm usually more then a bit shy at these things, never sure I have anything to add to the conversation. Though if I make myself dive in I almost always find common ground for discussion. That's what I need to do since this is a gathering of academics almost all of whom have research areas that align with mine in some way.
