Abstract:

In creating an ethnography about the City, Texas AOL chat room community, this paper: engages many of the assumptions made about Computer Mediated Communication; takes the ethnographic turn in studying online synchronous communication; and incorporates participant observation, auto-ethnography, and grounded theory. Findings suggest that in the City chatroom that the process of participants relating to one another is mediated by the collective knowledge of individual identities demonstrated in the chat room. This knowledge of others as individuals affects the use of nonverbal communication, conversation flow, and therefore negotiated community within a particular chatroom interaction.
