In this paper we describe structural and topical properties of "ordinary" blogs versus "popular" blogs. Using the complete directory of the Russian language LiveJournal, we sample both groups and show that the main difference between them is in the volume of posting activity and of commenting feedback and in the skewedness of respective distributions. No substantial differences in topical structure obtained with the LDA algorithm are found, which suggests that ordinary bloggers do not hold specific vision of topic salience and do not set their own "grassroots" agendas.

Offers its readers an article is a concise statement of the hypothesis on the possible conceptual foundations of information law of the digital age, that is the system of control in relationships, which must inevitably arise in the expanding penetration of information and networking technologies in the life of modern society. This vision of information law as the law of cyberspace, the Russian equivalent of English Cyberspace Law, was first presented by us January 27, 2000 at a conference on actual problems of information law at the Moscow State Law Academy. OE Kutafin. If you submit that information and communication networks - is not just a new means of communication, and the new habitat area of human civilization, a new sphere of human activity and the scope of the new law, it is easy to understand that the information law should have a special method of regulation, because regulation of the public relations, first of all, will be carried out in cyberspace.
Ukraine’s demonstrations for European integration began in Kyiv on November 21, 2013, after the popular journalist Mustafa Nayem called on Ukrainians to gather at the Maidan. Nayem worked for Ukrainian Pravda (UP), a political web site that served as an important mobilization resource for protesters during both the “Orange Revolution” of 2004 and the “Revolution of Dignity” of 2013. How did the popular UP bloggers imagine the European integration in the name of which they organized the Maidan? How did they imagine those citizens – about half of the population of Ukraine – who did not support their European aspirations? By means of discourse analysis of posts by the 35 contributors to UP's “Maidan” blog, this chapter shows that UP bloggers constructed “Europe” as a mythological object devoid of any social or political complexities, as a symbol of progress and a moral force empowered with the right to judge. The bloggers also constructed the opponents of European integration in the hierarchical terms of the progressive imagination – as people who were not developed enough yet to understand and support the clear call to progress represented by the European course. The argument I put forward is that by diminishing and marginalizing their “unworthy” compatriots, UP bloggers undermined the very democracy in the name of which they organized the Maidan.
