Burcu S. Bakioğlu has completed a very interesting dissertation, The Business of Storytelling: Production of Works, Poaching Communities and Creation of Story Worlds in Indiana University. She’s got lonelygirl15, The Art of the H3ist and Second Life on her platter. She also has a cool-looking blog with things like ARGs, zombie walks, convergence culture and… well, you know.
This looks really interesting — how come I have not heard of her work before? Damn monographists, Come Out & Share!
