As some of you know, I’ve started a PhD program in communication (last week, in fact). As part of that institutional transition I’ve created a new digital activism research project with a professor there, Philip Howard, which is called (what else?) the Digital Activism Research Project (www.digital-activism.org).
I realize that I will not have time to work on both that project and MAP, so MAP has come to an end. I’ll still pop into the Facebook group every now and again, and most of the work MAP created (the GDADS, the list of digital nonviolent tactics, the resource list) has already or will soon move to the DARP site.
I’ll still update this site, but as my personal blog. The basic division of labor will be that my speculative work on digital activism will remain here, while my empirical work will more to DARP.
Thanks for your support over the years and I hope you continue reading!
