web and technology
This is a really interesting article about a famous Chinese blogger, his blog, and censorship. I think it's worth reading, and it goes with what we did during the first half of the semester.
I think it would be an interesting idea for us to study serial fiction as a genre.
We began with some questions that were posted online for Nicole and Jen:
Did either of them feel any worry about posting their work on the internet, where future employers could find it?
Nicole didn't feel much concern but wondered if she should, mentioning her middle-school Myspace that's still online; Jen plans to work in the digital humanities, and so feels it's great for her to have an online presence. Nicole adds that most people's names are all over the Internet in places they didn't put it on purpose (Bi-Co articles, etc.).
