Hi Ashley,

I opted to use a private blog which I called e-Fieldnotes. Every conversation with the same person goes to a post, events, videos, other links etc have their own place as well. No one has access except from me and I can access it from wherever I want (I'm conducting online and multi-sited ethnography at the same time so it's very handy). It's also really easy to search by keyword - something which will be handy when I'll be doing the writing up of my dissertation.

Hope that helps.

All the best,

I'm looking for something to organize artifacts from a variety of sources, including websites, tumblrs, forums, tweets, interviews, etc. I don't necessarily need the software to help me analyze data, but need something to help manage artifacts from a variety of sources. I've been following the discussion of how best to archive websites, but I was wondering if there might be software that can integrate data from multiple platforms. I'm trying to construct an archive of the online communication of a particular community that uses multiple platforms.
