Hi, my name is Stefano and Iâ€™m a PhD student in anthropology at the University of Milan-Bicocca, in Italy.
Iâ€™m working on the issue of Iternet-addiction, I want to explore the forms and the cultural meaning of â€œnew tech addictionsâ€, especially from mobile tech and Internet, and secondly I want to compare these data with the research over old media (TV, gaming..) and â€œtraditionalâ€ addictions (heroine, cocaineâ€¦).
Do you know if there are some ethnographies on media addiction or media consumption?

My name is Tracee and I am an undergrad anthropology student at Illinois State University. I am currently writing my senior thesis on the video game culture, more specifically, why women play video games. Although I have gathered a great deal of data and sources I am still lacking sufficient anthropological sources on what interests women and how they talk about gaming. If you have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate you help. Also, I know that you are probably very busy, but I was wondering if you would have time to participate in an on-line interview. My work has been approved by the IRB to do on-line interviews and I could simply send you the questions and the release form. I just thought that your experience as a cyber anthropologist and gamer would make for interesting data.

Here’s a book you may find useful if you have not already read it:
There are also groups like the Frag Dolls (http://www.fragdolls.com/), that may give you insight.
I’d be happy to reply to your interview questions. You can email me diana [@] cyber-anthro.com.
