Hi Tracey and folks,

I'd take a look at Mary Gray and Siddharth Suri's work on crowd labor:
http://www.inthecrowd.org/publications/ They did a mix of ethnography and
big data analysis, so their methodology is very cool. If you're interested
in going the ethnography route, I'm writing my dissertation on crafting
platforms (Etsy & Ravelry) and the folks who work on them into a book at
the moment and would be happy to chat.

> Things like:
>    - Applied theory
>    - Walkthrough methods
>    - Ethnographic (of systems/orgs/platforms but not of social media)
>    - and etc.
> We have lots of great theory, but hard to find some research methods.  Any
