notes very necessary || Barbara Bridger & J. R. Carpenter
> Notes Very Necessary is a collaboratively authored web-based multi-media essay that aims to addresses climate change by remixing images, text, and data generated by centuries imperialist, colonialist, capitalist, and scientific exploration in the Arctic. The title is borrowed from an essay authored in 1580 by the Englishmen Arthur Pet and Charles Jackman offering detailed instructions on how to conquer new territories by taking copious notes. In 2015 Barbara Bridger and J. R. Carpenter attempted to follow these instructions by making, finding, and faking notes, images, data, and diagrams online and reconfiguring them into a new narrative.

What Iterative Writing Looks Like (and why it’s important) | Hapgood
I’ve been talking a lot about our fascination with “StreamMode”, the current dominant mode of social media. StreamMode is the approach to organizing your thoughts as a history, integrated primarily as a sequence of events. You know that you are in StreamMode if you never return to edit the things you are posting on the web.

The Anatomy of the Perfect Blog Post
It's a sure thing. It's based on Science. Consider what perfect means here: SEO ranking and shareable. Still, this is one of the rare how-tos that build in sharing and skimming to the reading. It helps us see the genre, and get a sense of how commodification drives it.

Hyperrhiz.06: Essays: A Four-Sided Model for Reading Hypertext Fiction
Four modes of reading are identified and described. These are semantization, exploration, self-reflection and absorption. These modes arise as the reader interacts with textual elements and utilises contextual features. Through the article the modes of reading will be discussed in relation to similar established concepts, such as the four approaches to playing MUDs identified by Richard Bartle (1996), and different attitudes of reading print literature represented in Wolfgang Iser's theory on "die Appellstruktur der Texte" (Iser 1974, 1978), or what he later in his text game theory calls "text game structures" (Iser 1989; 1993).

A Pragmatics of Links | Tosca | Journal of Digital Information
"This paper applies the linguistic theory of relevance to the study of the way links work, insisting on the lyrical quality of the link-interpreting activity. It is argued that such a pragmatic approach can help us understand hypertext readers` behavior, and thus be useful for authors and tool-builders alike." Read alongside Burbles. Rhetorics of the web. Becomes useful for practice on last page.

Two uses: a) to counter the tech eddies claim that we need to move faster, and b) to signal the need for more literacy focus in FYC et al. The myth was cooked up by admins and eddies mistaking marketing surveys for educational surveys.

EPIC FAIL: the sorry state of web education in schools |
via tech_rhet. Move away from teaching and using proprietary software - from Word to Dreamweaver - and start incorporating open source and web-based stuff - the kind of stuff that students can use to get beyond the proprietary. Excellent little article, but I wonder what took them so long to figure this out. Academia doesn't move as slowly as all that. Been doing this, and wrestling with it, for years. Might want to read this in conjunction with TBL's Long Live the Web.

Today's Guardian (Phil Gyford’s website)
Although the finished site looks nothing like a newspaper I think it has more in common with newspapers’ best features than most news websites do. The sense of browsing quickly through stories and reading the ones that catch your eye, feels similar.

Monograph | Teach the Web
A passable review of what web developers see a valuable in learning web development and design. As expected, the focus is on understanding theory, engagement, malleable learners. The article stereotypes higher ed courses as too slow to adapt. Also relies on the outdated bicameral mind to address the differences in practices in development and design. Worth tapping into.
