... but still some way to go. The main problem is that I have too many pages. The section on the theoretical framework is the main culprit. She is a behemoth (!) and I have to pull out the big scythe on this one :). Otherwise the analysis also needs adjusting to make it more coherent (read, smaller :)) as well as Boyd's Destruction and Creation has been introduced in the methodology; ahem that is going to make for interesting reading I think :).
The second part of the theoretical framework is fast making progress, here is the section on the Cluetrain Manifesto. I really would like to make it bigger but the page number is growing at a healthy clip so I need to stay focused ...
What follows is a fairly long excerpt from my paper which treats the salient aspects of web 2.0 (blogs and RSS) from the point of view of business. It is still a bit of a rough diamond I feel and for all intent and purposes it probably needs to be made shorter but so far this is what we have and I am thundering along with the rest of the paper before I return to the previous sections for corrections.
So, where are we? In essence it is pretty much steady as she goes and I have written a substantial part of the theory already which will come up here on a slew of pages in a couple of days. Moreover, I have come much closer to a real streamlined objective with this paper. In short, the methodology has been improved a lot I think in terms of laying out a road for where the paper goes and what it wants to say. Let me lay out the immediate time schedule for the next couple of weeks ...
First of all, I have two more interviews scheduled which makes it four in total. I have one tomorrow and one in the beginning of May. I think it will have to suffise with four qualitative interviews in total and coupled with my survey it should provide a pretty solid foundation of primary data on which to build the analysis.
Secondly, I want to have the rest of the theoretical framework done preferrebly before my last interview in the beginning of May but that might be a stretch since I also have one exam left in VTM.
So, expect some text from the theoretical framework soon as well as I will outline what I mean above by 'an improvement' in the methodology!
