There are a number of good (such as OII) and not so good specialists in
Internet studies, but to be a contrarian -- and friends please forgive me
-- I would suggest that you get your PhD in a longer-established
discipline, such as Communications, Information, Sociology, Comp Sci, etc.
-- with a concentation on the Internet as well as at least one other field
within that discipline.
That would improve your ability to get anchored in a discipline, received
more methodological and theoretical training, and get hired afterwards and
get grants to do the kind of research you'd like to.
Of course, there are good people and courses wtihin internet studies, but
I am thinking in probability terms.
