Digital Media is Everyware / concluding T#3

Hi Class,

Let’s conclude our 3rd travelogues and start minding the digital media around us.

Final research post – by Friday the 5th:

  • Post your final research post(s) based on the process you’ve been leading in the past 3 weeks.
  • Try to develop some insightful conclusions / questions / critique of your explored environment.
  • Comment on at least 4 posts.

Research conclusion (/product) – by Monday the 8th, 4pm:

  • Imagine we’ve never read your previous posts, think of them as your process and at this post as the final product to the level that this post could be reprinted (so to speak) in another site out of the context of an accumulative student research work
  • Post your concluding post for this travelogue.
  • Comment on other students posts as you see fit.
  • Be prepared to discuss your favorite (/most note-worthy) travelogues in class.

Required Reading / Viewing:

  • Adam Greenfield at PICNIC08: The Long Here, the Big Now, and other tales of the networked city:
  • Dan Hill, The City As A Platform
    (The first part is fun but can get slightly tiring, feel free to fast forward to the second part starting with: “This somewhat banal sketch of an average high street is very deliberately based on the here and now; “)
  • Read and comment on the summary.

Recommended Reading:

Niharika:

  • Go through the materials.
  • Summarize it for us in a nicely accessible post to be published by Sunday 4pm, ideally running some threads between them (you can use some wiki or collaborative writing software to write the post and then publish it under one of your names).
  • Be prepared to present the article and lead the discussion in class.
  • Post to del.icio.us some links that expand the discussion either about the text or about key themes in it.

Enjoy
