I may have mentioned before that I am a (huge) fan of CSI, so I’ve been trying to think of ways I could blog about it besides saying, “ZOMG! CSI is the best, Grissom is awesome!!”, in a fangirly fashion.
So I’ve managed to come up with a valid reason to blog about it. In my English class we are doing a research projects and we were given a list of topics we can choose from. For whatever reason that day I was feeling particularly assertive so I asked the professor if I could do a topic not on the list, more specifically a paper on the “CSI Effect”. The CSI effect is the theory that television crime dramas cause jurors to have unrealistic expectations in the courtroom. Since this a relatively new phenomenon and not very widely known it is a little hard to find good articles on the topic but, technology magic happened!
On my bloglines account I have an RSS feed for a website called CSI Files, that pretty much keeps me updated on the latest news. So to my surprise and enjoyment an article popped up on my feeds about the CSI effect and it had a link to another article. Thank you technology for doing my research work for me!
Now I just have to refrain from making too many dorky CSI references in my paper, wouldn’t want people finding out about my obsession. 🙂
