My name is Cynthia from Kenya.I just want to say thank you for your research and work in online activism. I just finished my dissertation for my masters degree and I used the cute-cat theory as my theoretical framework.It was very well received and even suggested that if I were to pursue a doctorate degree, this would be a very suitable area of research for me. My topic was ‘Internet memes and civic activism: a case study of Kenyan ‘Free laptop pledge’ memes on facebook. Anyway, your blog is extremely insightful and all the best in everything I guess. God bless you.
