    Welcome, Diana! It’s great to see you online – next, IRC. 😉

    As a side note for all anthropologists aspiring to do research online, I am documenting my entire process and will be providing a side report as my contribution to open anthropology.

    As one of those future grad students, I thank you heartily!

    Thanks especially for your approach and open process.

    I appreciate your scientific approach and use of open anthropology. As in other sciences, we know there is an unavoidable interaction between the observer and the observed. Sometimes it is turned on itself, with roles reversing, or occurring simultaneously. What I’ve read from you shows that you understand that studying a FLOSS community is an opportunity to embrace that observerobserved relationship because of the very nature of the community. The community exploits that relationship, showing itself fully, inviting observation, and inviting observer to become observed.

    Keep it coming, follow the release early, release often methodology, we may all be surprised at the results.
