Andreas Kitzmann’s book Saved from Oblivion: Documenting the Daily from Diaries to Web Cams looks as though it might be useful for studying weblogs and such. The book “focuses on the major forms of self-documentation that have been in use since the late nineteenth century and covers traditional diaries, snapshot photography, home movies/videos, and web-based media such as web cams and online diaries or journals.” I’ve put it in my shopping basket.
