Purple Barbie

Purple BarbieLiteracy Weblog)

I recently re-read Brenda Laurel’s Utopian Entrepreneur, which got me thinking quite a lot about what the landscape of cyberspace will look like when my daugher Carolyn starts exploring it. And just now I found that the link to Brenda Laruel’s legendary “Purple-Moon” website forwards to a Barbie website. Of course I knew that Mattel bought out Purple Moon years ago, but really… Barbie just rankles me.
