Apologies for the lack of posts over the summer. Jason has had a wedding to plan and I’ve been out of town doing intensive language-study courses all summer while also trying to buy a house and it’s all gotten in the way of any sort of academic work we’ve hoped to do over break. However, Jason has a lot of good stuff from his visit to Bronycon and we’re both ready to get back to posting. Hopefully we’ll be around quite a bit more here in the near future.
Anyway, we are both happy to announce that an interview we did with Julia Fernandez for the Library of Congress’ blog “The Signal: Digital Preservation” is up and running on the LoC site. We’re incredibly excited, as many of our favorite internet scholars have given interviews for the blog as well. The post is a bit dense, as it is focusing on conducting research on the internet, and they sadly didn’t include the awesome pictures/gifs/memes we sent them, but we did our best to represent the fandom as best we could and tried to include links to some of our favorite Brony-related content. We certainly enjoyed writing it up and hope you enjoy it too.
Check out the post here and be sure to let us know what you think!
EDIT: Jason worked his magic and made an awesome bookmarklet that adds in the pictures we originally wanted. To view the post in it’s intended glory, go here and follow the instructions.
