A few months back, a Michigan State grad student was soliciting participants for interviews to be used for his Masters thesis. He found some, and the thesis is out now.
It is thesis-ly entitled
WIKIPEDIA AS COLLECTIVE ACTION: PERSONAL INCENTIVES AND ENABLING STRUCTURES
You can see it at http://www.msu.edu/~john2429/Wikipedia%20a...ve%20Action.pdf
I was one of the subjects Ben interviewed. It was about the time, maybe a couple of weeks before, I started to contribute to WR. I can't say I see anything of myself in the thesis, even keeping in mind that I had yet to develop and sharpen my critique of WP through participation and interaction on WR. I was not
one of the two banned users he interviewed. I wonder who they were?
