Hello all,

I'm hoping the AoIR crew might be able to help me on this quest.

I'm trying to track down platform-specific research on fan communities
online. I'm particularly looking for ethnographic studies of
LiveJournal-based fan communities and production/communication networks in
the early 2000s. However, it doesn't need to be fan specific. Any research
on LiveJournal use in the early 2000s could potentially be helpful,
particularly if its addressing collaborative work of the platform.

If any of you have come across research on this topic, I'd really
appreciate your input. I've been able to uncover a few pieces of research,
but I'd really love to add to my reading list.

Thank you for the help!
