The Department of Rhetoric at the University of Minnesota has created
"Into the Blogsphere," a website to explore the "discursive, visual,
social, and other communicative features of weblogs."
Educators and faculty can post, comment upon, and critique essays covering such areas as mass communication, pedagogy, and virtual community. The website is located at http://blog.lib.umn.edu/blogosphere/.
