Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter

Abstract

The chapter investigates the early years of blogs diffusion in Italy (2001-2008) considering them as cultural objects (Griswold 1994; Colombo 2003, 2006). It will investigate the phenomenon applying an original approach aimed at examining how blogs’ technological, cultural, economic, and institutional dimension changed over time. It will show both the continuity between the origins of blogging in the USA and the peculiarities of Italian blogosphere, which are to be observed from their very inception, such as the adoption of blogging like an online diary or the creation of online and offline micro-communities.
