Week Six

WEEK SIX
September 30
Blog post making nugget from CL/DM  as meaningful as possible.
This week we are working on creating and curating ultra-rich environments that reflect our semi-professional identities as curious scholars. The concept experience that aligns with Nelson’s writing is to cast a wide net and pull in anything and everything that you can use to portray a specific version of yourself to the internet. In class we will talk about rhetorical strategies and computer possibilities.
