FRIDAY AFTERNOON, BI-MONTHLY JAMMY DODGER AND DISCUSSION GROUP: I presented my paper-in-progress today to a small but perfectly formed group of INCITErs, Adam, Steve, and Gerard. The paper comes out of my ethnographic work with photobloggers; it presents the practices of photoblogging as a kind of response to certain habits of photographic theory. It was a great discussion, and helped me (among other things) think more clearly about how an ethnography actually is itself a kind of theory (a set of ideas, formulations, for how something like photography works). And as ever, Jammy Dodgers (Dodgy Jammers?) fueled the afternoon.
