Internet Memes Timeline

A friend sent me a link to an "Internet Memes" timeline. It tracks some of the most common Internet moments, such as Star Wars Kid and the Hamster Dance.

What we're up to on this blog

In case you stumbled onto this blog by accident, let me share with you what it is we are up to here.

We're experimenting with blogging as a means of communicating our thoughts and reflections about the utility, function, and problems of communicating online for a course at the University at Albany, SUNY called Communication on the Internet (COM 430z).

On the right side of the screen is the class blogroll. Each student has set up his or her own blog. On there, students will post at least once a week a reaction to assigned readings. Occasionally, they will post longer essays contemplating various aspects of the communication technology.

In the center here, I will post occasionally on various aspects of new communication technology, too, especially issues of using blogging and other communication tools for teaching.

It's an experiment!

Welcome to the Com 430Z Blog

This is the home for Communication on the Internet, a blogspot for students of Com 430Z and others interested in the Internet, Web 1.0 and Web 2.0.
