On Thursday, February 7, 18 months after I started the site, JAPANsociology.com got its 60,000th view. In an era in which the video for Gangnam Style gets over 1.3 billion views, and videos of my son’s friends playing games on their computers get over a half million views, that might not seem like a lot. But for an academic site that posts students’ work, plus their professor’s, that’s pretty significant. It certainly beats treating students’ work like a secret, handed into their professor to be graded, returned, and then buried in a drawer.
On to the next 60,000!
