Abstract

We describe the blogging habits of 19 teams of students participating in the KTH triennial carnival. They were blogging in a rough environment, i.e. outdoors while nailing or welding carnival carriages together and painting them, and they were interviewed on site. Astonishingly enough, students did not mind bringing laptops into this environment. 53% of the postings made during the study were made from the construction site. The ability to blog from the site seemed to be important, teams that blogged from the site blogged more that teams who did not.
