hi sarah  : )

i did a lit review of online community studies for one of my orals papers
with a specific focus on studies of glbt identities/communities. feel free
to email me for a copy of the bibliography (and i'd be glad to pass this
biblio on to anyone interested).

there's really not that much that's been done..although it's a growing area
of research. 

welcome to the discussion here.
