The New Media Theory students are using the course weblog actively, and even cooler: Wu has started her own blogspot blog, Thinking while walking and some others have set up a joint blog, La Escuelita. The New Media Theory course has a course blog for everyone, and blogging is only compulsory for off-campus students. Even they only have to post three posts and three comments each. My Web design and web aesthetics course, on the other hand, has compulsory individual blogs. It’ll be interesting to see how these different strategies work. I wonder whether the percentage of New Media Theory students who start their own blogs will be the same as the percentage of very successful bloggers in the other class? Perhaps it’s a general rule: 5% of the population have a blogging gene, or something like that.

I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
