Astoria Thesis - one year later

Hi all,A year ago I wrote a thesis on Astorians.net and WLA. I passed the class but heard nothing from my professors, so was less than confident in it. (Also, I wanted their comments to clean it up before I showed it to anyone).My co worker, who recently enrolled in my same program, said my thesis was used as an example of what kind of thesis they would want to write. Very honored - and very conscious that I never shared the final product with those of you who generously helped make it…See More

OK, let's face it . If we'd ever get attacked, we most likely wouldn't really know what to do but : a] RUN [ like a girl ] b] scream [ like a girl ] c] kick [ like a girl ] d] a+ b + c Let's just hope it'll never happen to us or anyone for that matter, but the sad reality is that it can happen to everyone and statistics show that almost 18% of the women here in the USA have survived a completed or attempted rape.…See More

Astoria Thesis Survey - all help appreciated!

Hi all, As I mentioned, my Thesis is about how social media websites (such as WLA) help people discover and interact more with the physical neighborhood. Most of the research I am coming across seem to divide the two - offline and online, and the interaction here with astorians is a pretty unique thing. Here is my survey - its only 10 questions, mainly click, with room for you to put whatever comments you like:Click here to take…See More
