Jeremy Tolbert Asks: How Has The Internet Changed Fandom?
Today, we see almost weekly flare-ups and controversies in this thing called the blogosphere. New movements among writers appear almost as regularly, sometimes lingering (such as the Mundane SF manifesto). They burn bright, fast, and die down, it seems, just in time for the next major brouhaha. I think that’s the downside to this ease of communication. The Internet makes everything personal. Enemies are made quickly–but friends too. Perhaps not a unique trait of the medium, but a trait nonetheless.
I’d like to invite you to talk about the ways in which the internet has helped you connect with others and what communities you have formed or joined because of it.
