Special Guest

For my own enjoyment and for those who either didn't take notes or missed out on Dr.Mortensen's presentations today, I thought I'd post some of the ideas and links she mentioned.

Prior to today's presentations, all I knew about the history of the Internet I learned from Alamak. Now that I've heard from Dr. Torill Mortensen, however, I'm eager to study the Memex, Engelbart, Nelson, and Habermas. The concepts of hypertext theory she brought up today are far more interesting than I ever thought possible.

I'm sure many of us could benefit from spending some time at the World as a Blog . After just a few seconds on the site, I saw a post about spammers preying on Movable Type weblogs. I know Amy can't be the only one interested in this.

Among the other topics mentioned were Henry Jenkins (the cockroach guy), blogs for the poetry kids, some innovative women, and barbarian blogs.

All in all, Dr. Jerz's classes were wondrous fun on Wednesday, and thanks to Dr. Mortensen I've found the inspiration I needed to rejoin the big yummy endless conversation.

Jess, if you take my advance studies in English in the Spring, we'll go into even more depth. If you can fit it into your schedule, I'd love to have you there.
