Kris has just done a quite interesting presentation, here at the OII summer programme, about his research project re: weblogs and public access to information. His project, at INCITE at the University of Surrey, is sponsored by Sapient Corporation, a Boston-based consultancy, much to their credit. We’re talking about how to be properly skeptical when talking about the greatly-hyped blogs space. The question of how to run an academically-responsible research project when sponsored directly by industry is also on the table, which is terribly important by my lights. He’s got a cool model about how and where people access the Net as well.
