Scrapbooks were a coping strategy for old media

"Scrapbooks were a 'coping' strategy for old media at a time when distribution via railroads and cheap printing processes led to an overwhelming surplus of popular magazines and newspapers. [Ellen Gruber] Garvey describes them as 'a new subcategory of media – the cheap, the disposable, and yet somehow tantalizingly valuable, if only their value could be seperated from their ephemerality'. Scrapbooks were one just one strategy for indexing and archiving cuttings, including commercial clipping services, but scrapbooks represented a private, vernacular response to this information revolution. This remaking of popular media is clearly a precursor of the current blogging phenomenon, and Garvey's analysis of scrapbook making introduces some concepts that are useful in discussing blogging as part of our contemporary media culture."

Scrapbooks: tools for collecting our personal material culture

"Scrapbooks comprise much of the 'material culture' of personal memory: they contain memorabilia of all sorts, and photographs of people and occasions that are important in the individual's life. In this sense, they are the 'analog', nonverbal form of a diary or journal. Michele Gerbrandt, edits Memory Maker, a magazine devoted to 'scrapbooking' that began in 1996. In Scrapbook Basics: The Complete Guide to Preserving Your Memories (Memory Makers Books, 2002), Gerbrandt suggests that scrapbooks have their origins in the 'commonplace books' in which people collected literary passages, quotations, ideas, and observations for personal reflection. She reports that in 1709, the British philosopher John Locke (posthumously) published a New Method of Making Common–Place Books (sometimes included in editions of Locke's 1690 Essay Concerning Human Understanding). The common–place book eventually evolved into the modern scrap–book. In 1872 Mark Twain, who owned a publishing firm, marketed a 'self–pasting' scrap book. Scrapbooks document personal and family histories, and record experiences, good and bad, for later reflection. Many personal websites, not to mention weblogs (or 'blogs'), have a certain 'scrapbook' quality."

The Constellations publishing application: associative and dialogic

The Constellations publishing application is an instance of the Constellations Project. It is a structured repository whose organisational approach has been informed by an understanding of Mikhail Bakhtin''s Heteroglossia. In this way the application was an effort to facilitate the publication of user contributions through employing an associative and dialogic method. The Constellations application first went live in December 2003 and now represents the prototype for the post Web 2.0 Folksonomy version 1.0 and Folksonomy version 2.0 web applications.
