New Media Studies: Web Culture, Design, and Reviews a Go-Go

Yes, that subtitle is correct. Despite its author's obvious fondness for all things Sixties (there are pastel daisies on the homepage), this is an excellent site to consult for both creators and scholars of Internet culture. The site features reviews (with accompanying links) of Websites and books devoted to Internet culture, economics, and design. The site's creator -- David Gauntlett, Lecturer at the Institute of Communication Studies, University of Leeds -- also posts a Debates section that offers text and links to represent both sides of questions such as "Did Microsoft Ruin the Internet?" and "Is the Internet a Killer?" There's more, but I will just point out one last item: the site's link to Gauntlett's other Internet brainchild, {www.theory.org.uk}, which features a Resources and Reviews section providing essays, bibliographies, and some annotated links on major figures and topics in communication studies, from Judith Butler, Michel Foucault and Antonio Gramsci to Queer Theory, Web culture, and "media effects."
