I would like to thank Inderpal Grewal, Ahmed Kanna, Karen Leonard, Bill Maurer, and Caroline Melly for reading and commenting on previous versions of this article. I also received valuable feedback from Sima Shakhsari and the Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Program at the University of Houston when I presented this paper in March 2011. Partial funding for my research on Dubai blogging came from an Intel Dissertation Fellowship on Domesticity and Technology that I received at the University of California Irvine in 2006. My heartfelt thanks also to the many bloggers, posters, and lurkers whose presence in my life greatly eased my transition into off-line fieldwork and daily life in Dubai, and whose on-line and off-line conversations inspired this piece.
