I have been thinking about fieldnotes for a while now and I finally decided that the best way to do it, is privately. But at the same time, I didn’t want to handwrite my notes in a diary. So I created a menu category, visible to anyone that visits my blog, “e-Fieldnotes”. However, I’m the only one who has access to it.
As cyberethnography is still “under construction”, I think that e-Fieldnotes would be a great methodological tool for any ethnographers who have computer and Internet access. Of course, it wouldn’t work under other circumstances. Why go digital? Because it saves time. And it’s more convenient.
We’ll see how it goes anyway.
