As I mentioned last week, I've got to attend an emergency meeting in New York this Wednesday, so we need to do a bit of shuffling in the schedule. Here's how the next few classes will go:
Monday, April 21 -- Henry Jenkins, Convergence Culture, introduction through chapter 2
Monday, April 28 -- Henry Jenkins, Convergence Culture, chapter 3 through conclusion
Wednesday, April 30 -- Your suggested readings
A reminder: presentation signups are taking place through the wiki on the Sakai site; if you have not yet signed up for a date, please do so immediately!
A few sample projects that you might want to take a look at:
-- Another student, as I said, built a really extensive navigable 3-D film-based narrative. This was a standalone file, built in Blender.
Just a quick note to let you know that the reading response numbering has gotten all goofed up. Let's just say that the response due this past Monday on Bolter & Grusin was number 7, and that the response due the Monday after break, on Haraway and Stone, will be number 8. Tag accordingly!
I'm in the process of reading and commenting upon your reading responses from last week, and wanted to give you all a few pieces of information based on my readings of them.
Two quick things that I mentioned in class this week, but didn't have the brain cache left to come up with the names of:
- The online identity management service I mentioned to you was claimID.
- The book I was trying to remember the name of was Daniel Solove's The Future of Reputation: Gossip, Rumor, and Privacy on the Internet.
Have a good weekend!
In today's lab, I want all of you to make sure that your Pomona network accounts are activated and properly set up (for non-PO students only), to create your accounts on this website, and to create your first blog post. Some basic instructions:
1. See an ITS staff member at the front desk in order to get your network account activated; bring your college ID. For the first time you log in to your account, be sure to use a Windows machine, so that the account is properly configured with your PO web space, etc.
