    Abstract:
    This paper articulates a model for examining medieval vernacular multi-text codices which is based on the dynamics we see in the contemporary use of social media, particularly personal blogs. Both media democratise the use of an existing specialised technology, accelerate the development of this technology, and serve as vehicles for the maintenance of social relationships. This model is illustrated with examples drawn from The Findern Manuscript, Cambridge University Library, MS Ff.1.6, and the blog In the Middle.
