Context Book Report: a choice for unusual reasons?

I’ve decided to read Henry Jenkins’ Convergence Culture and then report on this work in my context book report. A few reasons for this choice:

  • During the 1980s and early 1990’s I worked at MIT. Occasionally I would receive a misdirected email message for him (our email addresses were different by just one character) and so we would interact every so often. We never did meet, but I remembered enough to make a mental Post-It …
  • and, just a few weeks ago, that mental Post-It came up once again and I found his blog, which I am now following with interest …
  • and, finally, the reviews I’ve read are sufficiently varied that I feel this will be an interesting read.

I hope it’ll arrive at my SFPL branch before I return some books this weekend.
