Under the microscope

Posted in Blogging, The Job - General by 200

From time to time, for some strange reason, people email me via this blog. Surprisingly, most of the emails aren’t insulting or derogatory.

I had one this week from someone at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen. Apparently, a team of three doctors & a research assistant have a new project looking at police blogs. They want to know the how, what, when, where & why on police bloggers, and some generic info on the who.

It’s quite exciting; I’ve never been the topic of academic research before, at least nothing that my doctors have made me aware of.

You can find out what they are doing over at their own blog at policeblogresearch.blogspot.com

    Pah. I reckon it’s Doctor Mel trying to out Gadget. At least that’s what the voices in my head keep telling me.

    Be cautious – the road to hell was paved with good intentions, was it not?

    I’m so cynical, these days. Sorry to knock you off your ‘special’ seat!

    Is that the institute named after the PSD D/Super?

    Fair enough Fee, I shall be cautious – I know people’s jobs could be at stake, especially after Nightjack. Although why The Times wanted to out him I don’t get, surely they shot themselves in the foot? P’raps they were just after the publicity, or wanted a professional coup regardless of the cost.

    LOL!!! Yes I got one of those too 200…

    It went into the bin…

    Anne O’Neill, no offence, but I wouldn’t trust you as far as I could throw you…

    ‘no, really we are legit! No intentions of outing anyone’

    Yeah right… you could have asked your questions in a post and had your replies there too: from me safely behind my proxy server with no ping backs set…

    heh… pull the other one…

    Hi Shijuro – I did send my queries via private emails when I could but had to do it via comments where I couldn’t find any private communication means on a blog. Feel free to ignore if you wish, that’s all part of the research.
