CommentPress sounds wonderful –and will probably prove indispensable in my learning spaces at the University of Michigan where I practice Limited Fork Theory: the study of interacting language systems (any/all visual, sonic, olfactory, tactile systems/subsystems on any/all scales), a theory that led to the jettisoning of the term “poem” in favor of “poam:” products of acts of making.
In the absence of such more refined blogging tools, I have relied on conventional blogs as a primary means of communication and dissemination of teacher and student-generated language-system based expression –as form is something to be written along with content of form, I dod not like to force a framework of “writing” upon outcomes of Limited Fork investigations and related outcomes (poams). These links are to the my class-related blogs for the current semester:
Limited Fork Theory Development Practicum: http://mblog.lib.umich.edu/limitedforkpracticum/
and Limited Fork Theory Atlas:
Because of the emphasis on interactions, Limited Fork Theory work is necessarily concerned with access, and the work therefore is public, in podcasts, in blogs, and at you tube on the forkergirl channel: http://www.youtube.com/forkergirl where there are 30+ examples of my video poams.
Limited Fork Theory student work is generously represented in LFT student blogs (themselves LFT poams) and in the Limited Fork Video Anthology podcast at iTunes, an all-student forked video showcase, by the way.
Again; thanks for what CommentPress enables –the Limited Fork will gratefully extend its bifurcating system tines there.
I hope that you something of interest within the tine systems of Limited Fork Theory.
–Oh yes; I should say this also: I felt as much at ease as possible with this “Shameless Peer Introduction” since it, well, seemed just right as an extension of this post.]]>
Aw, thanks so much Mark. :) I had hoped to do a post about the meta-discussion around the issue — about closed academic journals & public intellectuals — and will still try and do so when I get a spare moment!]]>
