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.

Vie and deWinter - Disrupting Intellectual Property, from Wikis in Composition
For teachers mainly. > By challenging the authority of the single authorial voice, wikis also call into question traditional notions of intellectual property as a market commodity. These notions propagate the argument that ideas are a unique product of individual labor and can thus “belong” to a single person. It may be precisely because wikis challenge these established notions that some student users resist their use in the classroom. In keeping with this general theme, the questions that guide our research are as follows: What is the currency of intellectual property in the university setting? Do wikis, in fact, disrupt established, dominant notions of intellectual property?

Himmer, The Labyrinth Unbound: Weblogs as Literature
"These features, I argue, characterize the weblog as a distinctive literary and creative mode, something richer and more nuanced than viewing it as simply the outcome of a specific toolset or formal structure allows for. The form’s literariness, then, is not a quality achieved by some weblogs and lacking in others." A stepping off point for Fitzpatrick, Pleasure of the Blog

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.

How open source is disrupting visual art
Like open source, writing on a wiki and creating new work in DH men's sharing from the start, and that sharing disrupts ego and the myth of original creation. "This "solitary genius" myth largely holds to present day, but it’s a fundamentally dangerous assumption that causes artists to be analyzed outside of their social context and one that is getting harder and harder to maintain in the age of the Internet. Open source dismantles this notion, demonstrating more than ever that artists never work in a vacuum."

Weller and Groom. State of the academy: " The uptake of new technologies in research and associated practices can be seen as a barometer for innovation within higher education. ... We suggest one possible antidote to this zombification of higher education is the use of new technologies and particularly the cultural norms they embody." Yes, and yes again.

App Store not invited to web's date with destiny • The Register
Love El Reg. This time they whack the Copernicans who preach conversion to an App Universe over the web. Its about The Sharing. But in this case, it's about vendors having to push. "Yes, we're in a transition period where standalone apps make sense. But to believe that "it's an app internet" now and forevermore is crazy talk, and assumes that there's more value in isolation than in connections. In other words, that apps are better than the Internet. They're not. The isolated app model is fundamentally inferior to an open web of connected content and apps, one that is infinitely more shareable and more discoverable. Sure, there's going to be plenty of room for hybrid approaches to web/native apps, and that's healthy."

Short reflection from a participant in CCK11 on bounded forum v open/PLE. Lots of openings into a further consideration here.

McNeill - Blogging as New Literacy Practice
Looks at some affordances in weblogs that enable "a new literacy practice characterised by what Lankshear and Knobel call an “active sociality” (2006: 1). This “active sociality” is exemplified by modes of participation and displays of identity and affiliation that mark it out as significantly different from other forms of textual communication."
