Confessions of an Aca/Fan: The Official Weblog of Henry Jenkins

Jenkins is the director of the  MIT Comparative Media Studies Program and writes about media and pop culture.  He started his blog this summer since his new book Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide  has just come out.  His posts are really interesting and after reading his blog, I plan on reading his book soon. I think both it and his blog could be useful references for ATECH majors.

and on the entertainment side:

http://www.stereogum.com/

Stereogum is one of the more popular mp3 blogs and generally focuses on indie rock with a few posts on bigger artists.  It’s a fun read, it’s not too hipster-snobby and is a good way to find out about new bands.
