Blair, Kristine L.
Computers and Composition, v13 n1 p85-91 1996
Shows how microethnography can be an effective tool for analyzing the possibilities and constraints of electronic discourse by overviewing two electronic mail ethnography projects. Suggests that such approaches can help students better understand electronic rhetoric as well as electronic ideology (the power relationships and cultural values that determine what is said and who says it).
