Jenkins blogs

I just discovered that Henry Jenkins has a blog. (Long overdue, in my opinion!) It's only been up since June, but not surprisingly it's already chock full of great, provocative posts, examining such topics as: The longtail and the future of television , using one of my favorite shows (Firefly) as a case study; the meaning and possibilities for video game criticism; and the difficulties facing academics attempting to publish books with a wider audience. And it looks like his forthcoming book, Convergence Culture is due out soon as well. Jenkins's writings on fandom, on popular culture, on convergence and digital media have been quite influential for me. So, I'm happy to have more of his work to dig into.
