O.k. — I admit, I’m due for a long piece of writing here, but for the time being, I’ve got to get some homework logs graded, write up a summary piece for a grad school class, and figure out how I’m going to teach the next text for both English classes, so I’m just going to post some interesting links I’ve found in catching up with blogging:
(Oh… and in the wonderful world of bloggers everywhere… my father just found my blog and found a way to introduce it into conversation last night. Very funny, Dad.)
From Kerry’s Blog, a fun Geek Quiz (and yes, I tested out at 194 — Mega-Geek.) And a really powerful piece of anti-war flash animation. (And yes, I’m considering teaching flash in New Media so people can make cool pieces of propaganda of all stripes.)
From Joe Luft, a link to a collection of articles about School Vouchers from Boston Review. Good reading.
From Brad Delong: a link to the New Yorker article about the mess that is our government. I’ve got the New Yorker at home, and this article is a must read.
From Lawrence Lessig’s blog, we have the Creative Commons Moving Image Contest, and Connor, Jeremy, Loren… if you are out there, I STRONGLY suggest you apply. And if you win, Beacon will happily take the G5 off of your hands.
From Will Richardson comes a cool post in his journalism class where students sound off about blogging. If I felt like I had done a better job in using the blogs in my New Media class, I think I could spark some really cool meta-discussions about it… but we’ll see. I’m still not happy with how I’ve set that up as sort of a "when you aren’t working on your movie, blog…" kind of activity.
O.k. — back to work…
