Observing Old Internet Technologies

The students of Com 430Z are posting an essay to their blog today based on observations they've been conducting on a chosen "old channel" through the Internet, such as IRC, Usenet, MUDs/MOOs, and email lists.

I asked them to blog a daily journal of their observations. It's been great fun to read their observations and discoveries. It pleases me to see students interacting with some of these old, but still used, technologies that they may not have ever heard of or used before.

I'm eager to read their observations in essay form, and see what connections they make between their observations and what they've been reading over the past month.
