  1. My thought is on this domain of zero-dimensional space that we call the blogosphere, which, depite its lack of any corporal ontology, seems to have infinite possibilities in respect to the forms and entities that comprise its ontological domain.

    There are endless modalities of the expressions of cognition always being interfaced with the concepts and conceptualizations produced by other humans. This seems to have an effect of creating threads of contextualized repositories of data – the thoughts of many – that spiral in any direction, or, I could say, in no direction at all in a physical sense.

    Now, I should point out that one might object to my analysis, saying that the blogosphere can be reduced to physical interactions among various objects, but this is an incomplete description because it fails to encapsulate the the life given to the spaceless domain that is equivalent to human agency; to human thought. To sum, the blogosphere is the interface of human thought and a repository for expressions of that collision of cognitions, resulting in an array of spiraling webs; thoughts instantiating relationships with one another.

    We have not even begun to explore this radically new form of human interaction. As a sociologist, I want to better delemit this subject so to define its phenomenal domain. Then patterns and relationships can be extrapolated from research, observation, and induction. Indeed, I can incorporate this avenue of thought into my analysis of organizations that base their communications on internet forums, which I include under the scope of the blogosphere.
