The thinginess of the web:
Q: Why do the powerful sneer at Media Studies?
A: Because they do not want us to detect their crap!!
This is our play
Not ‘digi-lit 101’
MCQ'd up the whazoo.
When writing we do not start with a sentence – but with an idea – with something to say – we struggle to articulate and make meaning…
Till in school we are told we cannot spell – or punctuate.
That our grammar is deficit.
That we are deficit
That we need to be fixed.
And not yet corralled
Seeds a different learning
We learn because we want to
we struggle with meaning and the meaningful…
we have something to say…
beyond the cats and dogs and porn and trolls – there is the ineffable beauty of our saying it for ourselves – saying it ourselves.
The portal once crossed
We can re-frame
ideas of learning
Bruner had the will to learn
this medium is the message
The web in its essence invites connection, re-configuring, innovation…
Is an eco-system of connections…
We are the web!!
Trying out loud
RIF and re-mix culture.
Defeating ‘cheating, collusion and plagiarism’
to connect – create – re-purpose.
Read – write – participate…
Doing, making, crafting.
It’s the joy of these ‘awkward first moments’
of something so momentous:
of Doctorow and the beginning of history…
Curate your life
Fall off the edge.
