maxmod::weblog xirdalium

cyberanthropology blog goes online

Finally my cyberanthropological weblog xirdalium is on air. It is the unequal twin of my static website zephyrin_xirdal and lives at Site and blog together will render my open-research project "maxmod :: online among the gamemodders — the cultural appropriation of information and communication technologies" (abstract) as visible and transparent as possible. The blog just adds the substantial spice of interactivity, the possibility of feedback & discussion. Furthermore the dynamic software (blosxom) of the blog enables me to structure the whole project far better, and thereby hopefully making it more digestible for the occasional online-reader. So, if you want to waste the last bits of your scarce time by reading about cyberculture, cyberanthropology, cyberpunk, computergames, [insert any other word starting with 'c'], the cultural appropriaton of ICTs, or the random bit of strange, then point yourself directly to xirdalium.

Comments so far have been:

"man your blog is full of crazy stuff"endo via IM
" interesting but too weird for me...well, sorry."cyberist

Not to forget the one comment which reached me via timemachine, straight from the year 1908:

"Ceci, Messieurs, disait-il, c'est du Xirdalium, corps cent mille fois plus radioactif que le radium." (Verne & Verne 1908b: chapter 10)

great. congrats!

(sometimes through netrush, listening carefully to sounds from the distance, you could hear the elder wolves howling tales of a weblog rising. the author will be wearing a collier of weirdness around his coaty neck. *g)

all the best,
