MediaShift! Berlin!

The last two weeks have had two pieces of great news and one piece of not so great news. First, the good: I got a paper accepted to the Association of Internet Researchers (AoIR) conference in Berlin, and MediaShift was awesome enough to adapt my latest article into a post for their site.

The not so great news is I got my first article rejection. Even that ended up being weirdly pleasant, since every person I've mentioned it to has made me feel like I just joined a club in which most academics are members. That scene in Goodfellas where Henry gets arrested and all his gangster friends meet him at the courthouse to celebrate? It's been sort of like that.

Now I've got a few weeks to get a first pass at my prospectus done before I head to Japan for ICA. Not a bad way to start the summer.
