Shaw and Benkler win Best Published Article Award in Information Technology and Politics from the APSA

Berkman fellow Aaron Shaw and faculty member Yochai Benklerhave won the Best Published Article Award in Information Technology and Politics published in 2012 from the American Political Science Association for their paper A Tale of Two Blogospheres: Discursive Practices on the Left and Right.

In this publication, Shaw and Benkler analyze the discursive practices of 155 U.S. political blogs on the left and right during the summer of 2008. In their analysis of the political blogosphere and its accompanying cross-ideological variations, Shaw and Benkler examine the impact of the internet on democratic practices as well as the implications of technology on knowledge production. 

Congratulations to Shaw and Benkler, and to all those 2013 award recipients.
