[HW UPDATE: I originally published today's post with HW assignment on RSS-- by the time I caught the mistake some of our sharper colleagues had already done the work (kudos!). They won't have HW the day I assign it. But it's not due tomorrow.]
JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "Connected" by Stereo MCs; "The Mothership Connection" by George Clinton]
We are "connected" to each other in all sorts of ways: biologically, geographically, emotionally-- and, increasingly, technologically. Describe the networks you belong to both (both online and offline) and explain how technology strengthens or weakens your ties to others in the network.
2. Lecture 2.0 (if you missed it you can see the prezi here; we got as far as the "automate your search" slide)
1. Read Roy Christopher's post on Digital Natives and prepare three questions or comments for tomorrow's talk.
2. Go to netvibes.com and get started.
2. Think about the challenges you faced in writing the Hamlet essay and prepare three questions for this week's writer's conference.
