Lots of great responses to the assignment this morning! Thanks guys 🙂 Here’s today’s plan:

  • Hand out paper topics and discuss them.
  • I think Olav might not be here today, but if he is, I’m going to ask him to show us how he did the merged RSS feed for all the student blogs. If he’s not here (he mentioned a collision with another class) I’ll have to show em myself I guess.
  • I’ve photocopied a few of the best reponses to blog post 2, and we’ll discuss them and talk about interlinking and such.
  • We’ll go to Rune Klevjer’s lecture on the Columbine Massacre game.

This means we’ll be postponing the original topic – confessional blogs and fictional blogs – till next Wednesday.
