Week 10

Read and respond on Twitter to your classmate’s “Contextualizing Scholarship Activity” you are assigned. Compare his or her findings to yours. What did he or she identify as an affordance that you did not mention in your blog post? What points did he or she make about the work that you may not have caught? Write and post three tweets that encapsulate your thoughts.

Compare the sentiments of freedom and power proclaimed in the two manifestos with the way in which stereotyping occurs in digital media.  In light of this irony, create a manifesto of your own that captures your own views about one of the following: 1) gamer culture, 2) online racial stereotyping, 3) the freedom of online information. (250 words; cite from the readings; due by the beginning of Tuesday’s class.)
