I'm doing a study on Street Fighter


#1

I’m doing an ethnographic study on the competitive Street Fighter community. More specifically, our group is trying to get some insight as to how the death of arcades and the transition to console is affecting the community/scene.

Would anybody be willing to participate in an online interview via AIM? It shouldn’t take longer than 30 minutes, unless you guys have lots to say.

We’re looking for anyone who plays Street Fighter, but preferably people who play in tournaments, and people who have any input on arcades, playing on console, internet play, etc.

If you guys are interested in being interviewed, post up your aim screennames or PM them to me. I need a good ~15 people for this, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Awesome, thanks guys. I think I may need one or two more people, so if you’re interested, go ahead and post up and I’ll send you a PM if we could use the interview :smiley:

Again, we’re interested in people who have an opinion about playing in the arcade vs playing on console.

Oh and for those of you who mentioned msn, I think we’re going to stick with aim, just because everyone in the group uses it and that’s how we’re communicating with eachother.

I’m actually a Computer Science student, but I’m taking an ethnography class that focuses on computers and technology.

The assignment itself was pretty open-ended: we were told to choose some form of technology and perform an ethnographic study on it. Originally we were going to study the community as a whole, but we decided to narrow our focus down so that we could actually have some conclusive results, as opposed to just an overview of the Street Fighter scene.
