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.
