This time I’d like to draw your attention to the project under LJ account http://russ-cyberspace.livejournal.com/ (along with related websites) — this is the joint effort of several academic groups from Western universities who routinely study our beloved Russian Internet commonly known as Runet.

New announcement in the pointed journal tells us about the fresh thematic project from the Norwegian University of Bergen — which is intriguingly called “The Future of Russian”. They are nowadays launching some researches about Runet realms such as a “study of the linguistic and cultural features of the community formed on the website bash.org.ru”, which is being prepared by a former Lenta.ru employee.
