More Blog. Less Talk.

Complaints I often hear around campus (our students don’t read/write) are turned on their head when we see the kinds of writing circulating around the economy of expression called the Web. Not everyone‘sthere yet, but many are; many we don’t realize are our the students in first year writing sitting there bored because of some textbook or uninformed instructor asking them to write about ?a controversial issue? or their favorite shirt. Take it to the Web. There you?ll find the bizarre ideas and beliefs many of us hold linked together in Shaviro‘simagined connected world (Sci-fi? Life-fi as well). There you will create something to write about. —J RiceMore Blog. Less Talk. (Yellow Dog)
