Loyola CMC corpus online

Written By: daveski on June 1, 2009 No Comment

My curiosity was piqued by news of a Computer-Mediated Communication corpus from Loyola that gives access to writing samples from a group of 21 people in blog, chat, discussion, email, essay, and interview genres. Not a monolithic sample size to be sure but this might raise some interesting questions…

It was also interesting to see that they use a WordPress blog to present what is essentially static content (up to this time, anyway). I wonder if this isn’t the fate of most ‘blogs’ – they’re so easy to set up that the majority must just have one or two ‘essential’ posts and then just sit as sentinels redirecting folks elsewhere.

More on WordPress and the recent WordCamp in San Francisco soon…
