A Momentary Pause for Social Networks
One of the problems with having an active research program is that sometimes that program tries to smother you with work. A project that I am working on (determining the best use of online social networks in college classrooms) is suddenly requiring about 16 hours per day of my time (I have 17 meetings next week alone!), so it will be quiet here for the next week or two as I rush headfirst into the heart of it.
But I promise it will be quite interesting when we return! A meta-analysis recently appeared claiming “conclusive” evidence that violent video games cause violence. That’s a pretty strong statement, but I’m only hearing it from secondary sources. So in the researchblogging.org tradition, I’ll be diving into that piece in a couple of weeks and blogging on what’s really there. Stay tuned to see what’s up!
