  • system of ascending precedents: A sociological phenomenon wherein an event sets a precedent of quality or appeal that will act as a "minimum performance standard" whereby all subsequent events will be judged. The expectation that each subsequent event will exceed the previous one in quality or appeal will result in the "performer(s)" of the event being locked into a system of ascending precedents.

8: Examples: At an office party, a group of people are standing around telling jokes, doing imitations, telling fish stories - it doesn't matter. Each one is funnier or better than the one before it. When one's turn comes around, the pressure one feels is from having one's credibility hanging in the balance in the face of a system of ascending precedents. One writes ads for a living. Circumstances have conspired such that each ad idea one presents is better than the one before it. Soon one is losing sleep and eating antacids by the handful the day before the meetings because one has locked oneself into a system of ascending precedents.

  • whitosphere:(also spelled "whiteosphere" at times) is the part of the blogosphere that is populated primarily or exclusively by white people. The term was coined by Francis L. Holland, Esq. at MyDD on or about February 9, 2007, in the context of a heated debate between white and Black bloggers over the documented lack of Black participation at white Democratic Party participants' blogs. The term subsequently was adopted by hundreds of Black bloggers and their readers as a concise and poignant way to describe a complex and hotly debated political phenomenon: the de facto segregation of whites and Blacks online.

    For example, in an article for the Washington Post staff-writer Jose Antonio Vargas quoted the organizer of the 2007 YearlyKos national bloggers' conference as saying, "It's mostly white. More male than female . . . It's not very diverse."

    One participant asked, "Why is the blogosphere, which is supposed to be more democratic, reinforcing the same white male power structure that exists?" A Diversity of Opinion, if Not Opinionators, Jose Antonio Vargas, Washington Post, August 6, 2007.

Explaining the sociological and political premises underlying the term "whitosphere," Francis L. Holland, Esq. said in an article entitled, "Is the term 'Whitosphere' a Fair Descriptor for the White Blogosphere?" that the term "white neighborhood" is very commonly used in America to describe a neighborhood that is predominantly or overhwhelmingly white. The prevalence of this term in our language is a reflection of the degree to which Blacks and whites have historically lived, and continue to live, in segregated neighborhoods in America, due historically to legal, structural, customary and financial restrictions placed by whites on where Blacks and other minorities could go and where we could live. researchnews.osu.edu/archive

Because the term "white neighborhood" describes where whites live, and the "blogosphere" is the part of the World Wide Web that is characterized by its resident blog population, therefore the term "whitosphere" is used to denote that part of the blogosphere that is characterized by the fact that it is predominantly or almost exclusively populated by whites.

The term "whitosphere" reflects the absence of Blacks at white blogs, an absence particularly striking relative to the prominence of Blacks in appropriate reference populations, e.g. Democratic Party primaries and Democratic Party general election voters. For example, the whitosphere blog MyDD has 1.5% - 1.7% Black participants while DailyKos has as few as 4.5% Blacks. See MyDD Demographic Survey and the article entitled, "What is Your Race & Ethnicity - Poll - (Demographic Tuesdays)" at DailyKos.

Meanwhile the Democratic Party is twenty percent Black, and twenty percent of the delegates at the Democratic National Convention are Black. "Is the term 'Whitosphere' a Fair Descriptor for the White Blogosphere?", Francis L. Holland, MyDD, February 9, 2007.

The term has also be quoted in the a Washington Post, in an article entitled, "On African American Blogs, Sharp Words for Candidates, Washington Post, January 22, 2008.

The term "whitosphere" has over eight thousand hits at Google, along with " over 1,000 hits for the disfavored alternative spellings, "whiteosphere".

The term "whitosphere" is also discussed and explained at the American Journal of Color Arousal (AMJCA), e.g., in the article entitled, [http://amjca.blogspot.com/2008/02/afrosphere-or-blackroots-two-synonymous.html "Afrosphere" or "Blackroots"? Two Synonymous Names for the Same Movement.
