Confidential to the BSG fans among my readership…

… especially those of you on Twitter: I just learned (via Twitter, of course) that someone has set up Twitter accounts for a whole bunch of Battlestar Galactica characters. I’m currently following @billadama and @cylonhybrid. (But where’s Laura Roslin?) And looking forward to getting cable in my new apartment when I move at the end of the month, so I can catch up with Season 4.

And, speaking of Twitter and things related, I’ve had a small epiphany: I’ve been deeply interested in the internets ever since I discovered the web circa 1995, but I’ve always thought of that interest as separate from my official research interests, even after I officially moved into information science land. But, I realized last week, why not consider internet cultures (and subcultures) as one of the things I want to write and publish about? I can add it to the ever-lengthening list, which now ranges from history of the book to humanities computing to assorted literary-critical topics from my dissertation to the spatial dimensions of information. At some point, I’ve got to find a writing group so I can actually get some of these amorphous projects into a somewhat more morphous state, and pin down which ones are feasible.

But, in the meantime, I’ve got to go update my Twitter status. Later…

    I’ve just started on BSG (my fiance is a fan) so I’m not looking at those Twitter feeds!

    I don’t think there are too many spoilers for the current season, but I definitely sympathize with the impulse to stay unspoiled. Enjoy the series!
