    Hi everyone. I’m leaning more into the intersections of leisure and information seeking behavior. My initial community of hardcore video game players was interesting initially, but after going down the rabbit hole of other leisure activities, I ended up going two, more personally exciting, directions:
    (1) The live-streaming community, like Twitch
    (2) Hikers

    What do y’all think?

    • @hellodaniel either of these communities would be very interesting to focus on. For the live streaming community, you might have to pull from the broader literature, devoted to information behaviors and needs within social media, communities or creators communities. That would offer a lot of different studies to pull from to inform your view of the community. Hikers would be a great serious leisure focused community and I have had many successful papers on through hikers, long distance, hikers, etc.
