Remediation, Genre, and Motivation: Key Concepts for Teaching with Weblogs

This article relates perfectly to class because our class is solely based on Web blogs. We communicate with our classmates and professor thru web blogging.
-The 3 different genres of web blogging: Journal, Notebook and Filtering.
-Blogging consists of old and familiar media(remediation) like print, music, film, television, radio, paintings, email, etc.);
““the language of cultural interfaces is largely made up from elements of other, already familiar cultural forms”
-Motivations for blogging can be a number of things but through the research in my article they narrow it down to 3 things: record keeping, emotional and intellectual.
This article also goes into detail on how it can help teachers make students want to use web blogging and incorporate in their classroom.

My Own Personal Notes:

Ch.1-6 Electronic Monuments

Aura= intangible image.

Electracy= photography.

Spectacle——-> “Compassion Fatigue”

Punctum logic

Is it possible to mourn  together, a collective. – maybe yea, people mourn at funerals all the time so yea…

Dimensions

Community, school, culture.

Blog

got to relate or apply to any topic of the reading it just has to relate….. kinda goes the same with the exercise.

EmerAgency

“to add an Internet dimension to a curriculum that would give public schools a new voice as a ‘fifth estate’ in our society”

task: General, Specific

*MEmorial “Electrate Commemoration” (pg 48)

Apparatus

1) Techno-Media

2) Institution

3) Subjectivity

ATH(ate’)

-Testimony

-Chora :Image logic

Collective: we shouldve been able to foresee the disaster….some people did though.

ATH: blindness or foolishness in an individual, and calamity or disaster in a collectivity

-blind spot

What is in our blind spot???

How to incorporate it?

The MEmorial needs to have an emblem.

Not going to do an allegory. Allegory is generalized.

Its more about the group experience and sacrifice.

The MEmorial is describing a state of mind. You dont write it in the literal way. Its all about presentation.

“One does not write the disaster in a literate way, w/definitions and concepts.” “MEmorial does not analyze the disaster, but discovers mood” Pg.153 and 154.

News Blogs

But wasnt he a soldier was a good story that I thought would relate to when Ulmer was saying how people can become an image/spectacle. This soldier killed an infant and nobody wouldve ever thought he did he could commit such a awful crime because of the image us americans give our soldiers.

In St.Petersburg Florida a 16 year old kid shot and killed a police officer. Somebody created a facebook page for Lil Nick and people for him and against him came together on facebook to share there opinions, sympathy for the families or to just mourn over the entire situation but that is a instance where I can say a community came together through a social network over a disaster.

Band 1: Instructions for Project 3

-Learn your place in the disaster.

-What is going to be the oracle in our project? : ???

-The connection(the personal connection) is the content.

-Conduction: a way to gather information.

-Each pop cycle has its own language.

-Cyberpidgin: Language spoken between users on the internet. Exp: lol, smh, emoticons. We’re not composing an essay or documenting a film disaster or selling a product. So writing in cyberpidgin keeps our project in electracy…..hmmmm i guess thats also considered txt speak. combining multiple discourses.  Its partially relevant to the right audience.

——-Exp: Rick Rolling on youtube.

-The collective(me and the audience) feel a connection and all can mourn….

-Presentation of whats in our blind spot, a lil bit of autobiography. ANY MATERIAL AT OUR DISPOSAL THAT IS RELATED TO OUR TOPIC.

-Collage, mash up of everything!!!!!!! ANYTHING!!!!

-Not just explaining and documentary, but have expression, our personal feelings, showing the linking, my position in my network and community.

-See multiple positions!

-I’m in individual but i am also part of a network.

– What IS MY CAPACITY OF BEING AFFECTED!!!! THATS THE PROJECT!!!!!!!(ATH)

-We don’t want to be overly sentimental

-Trying to have people recognize the blind spot without actually putting it out there.
