In a recent post I mentioned I would love to hear how Amy decided to take on such a wonderful = what? Community , project, service and all round valuable site...

It would be great if you did the "voting thing" or set up a forum (subject) for the research for your computer class...

Good Luck, I am sure it will be a success!

on computers and knitting. both are languages really.
from a different perspective a well-known computer scientist from berkeley and a mathematician from notre dame invented a new stitch for knitting

oh and how about Mason-Dixon knitting? It's all about women building community on-line through knitting.

I can't think of an article about computers specifically infulencing knitting. Though I recall one related to a web site connecting readers.

If she reads the opening intro to Mason Dixon Knitting it discusses how the two authors met on another knitting forum, later developed there own blog and of course later the book. If not for the computer world of forums they may not have ever met or published sucha book and in turn inspired thousands of knitters.

I'm sure there are other examples of peeple meeting on knitting forums. This site has helped thousands learn to knit, including me. So for such an report she may just have to site these many examples rather than rely on specific articles.
