â€¢ Steven Krause links to Cory Doctorow’s 17 Tips For Getting Bloggers To Write About You. Good tips for people with websites who want the attention of bloggers.
â€¢ One of the newest fads in higher ed are those stupid clickers students have to buy. Here at OSU, students might have to buy 3 or 4 per term, and, from my understanding, they can’t be reused. Rhosa Eberly has brought this up at the Blogora. Last month, Ira Socol wrote a blog post asking if perhaps using mobile phones instead of clickers might be a better idea, in addition to calling into question the traditional lecture format of these classes.
â€¢ The Chronicle reports that Noah Wardrip-Fruin is posting portions of his book that he is drafting on the blog Grand Text Auto. This is kinda old news, but it’s still interesting. He’s getting feedback, and he’s also interested in seeing how the local comments he gets on the blog might contradict the global comments he gets from reviewers during the publishing process.
â€¢ Gregory has started a co-authored blog for our 4C’s workshop, What’s Queer Got To Do With It, where we’ll be posting (hopefully) our thoughts and drafts as we consider our upcoming workshop (in less than 3 weeks!). I’m excited for our project.
