Congratulations to aoir member Lori Kendall on the release of her new 
book _Hanging Out in the Virtual Pub: Masculinities and Relationships 
Online_ (U of California Press)! A copy just arrived in my morning 
mail and it looks wonderful.

Back blurb reads:

"In this highly readable ethnography, she examines how men and women 
negotiate their gender roles on an online forum she calls BlueSky. 
Despite the common assumpotion that the online personas people craft 
for themselves bear little resemblance to reality, Kendall discovers 
that the members of BluSkyu stick surprisingly close to the facts of 
their actual lives and personalities. "
