Ethnography[edit]

The relevant guideline is WP:EL. WP:SPAM and WP:COI might apply as well and are worth a look. In general, it's best to contribute directly to the article. For topics that are not controversial or current events, I agree with other editors here that there should be few if any external links besides those used for sources/references. --Ronz 21:05, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Ronz -

Thanks for your information, as you might have seen on your talk page I probably left off the fact that this is not just a "link to a blog" but actually "Ethnograpy in action". I am not the originator of the idea, nor the expert, and felt odd posting the information in the body of the article. I would hope that an expert would see the interest in Digital Ethnography as a growing area and create a section using Professor Wesch's commentary as well as others. --Dkaufman1 16:06, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

If you're not comfortable making the edits yourself, it's probably best to propose them on the Talk page for other editors to see and follow up. --Ronz 21:30, 21 February 2007 (UTC)
I have followed your advice as I think Digital Ethnography is an interesting topic that more and more people will start to research. Thank you.--Dkaufman1 16:53, 22 February 2007 (UTC)
