  • Alec,
    I really enjoyed clicking through your presentation. I got a lot out of it just from a visual standpoint. I'd love to hear you give this presentation face to face. Nicely done.

  • No problem, Leigh. I take your critique very seriously and was genuinely interested. The slides alone can be misleading without the audio. The only time I used those slides was for EdMedia, and unfortunately, the session wasn't recorded. Next time I make the point, I'll record the audio and throw it your way.

    And in case you were wondering about the slide before that, it's a screenshot from http://www.cord.edu/experience . Traditionally, when universities create their institutional presence, they often design it from various viewpoints 'prospective faculty, current students, prospective students' as you know. I used the virtual experience to explain that while you can make this process as pretty as you want, in the end, it's still (like the 'choose your own adventure' books) finite choice, illusion, and placebo for unique perspective.

    Thanks for your time.

    • danah boyd Teens are not connecting in the ways we fear. But, we need to pay attention to: •Properties: persistence, replicability, searchability, scalability, (de)locatability. •Dynamics: invisible audiences, collapsed contexts, blurring of public & private @zephoria spaces
    • Michael Wesch • Inspired by McLuhan’s “We shape our tools and thereafter our tools shape us.” • Youtube & other social media mitigate “connection without constraint”. In many cases this leaves to @mwesch “tremendously deep communities”.
