Dear Andrew,

Thanks for your effort in compiling this bibliography. It helped further my studying process in the area. Now that I am about to complete my PhD, I would be grateful if you could update the list adding my article on the latest generation of Italians in London and its use of cyberspace. The article was recently published by an Italian peer review journal. If you have this opportunity, please contact me and I will send you the details.
