blogging "communities" - individual monologues...

I'm probably repeating myself again - The blogging interface on most blogs - is frustrating in that it centers the monologue.

In livejournal an illusion of conversational interactivity seems at least possible - but the organization of conversations becomes inefficient there too (which is why I suppose the "friend cut" happens - when someone is trying to do a sort of "spring cleaning" on their LJ...)

Anyways - Like T. S. said at the precon in aoir - it took 5 years for researchers to actually begin to examine LJ - but is this perhaps also generational?

Can one experience LJ cyber-ethnographically if one is old enough to be an academic producing what is officially recognized as "research" - who lives there?


Anyone care to discuss this?
