We went to an old friend’s wedding out in western New York, Niagara Falls to be exact. We hadn’t seen the bride, Mary Maloney, in, geez, ten years? So I thought, I should add her as a Facebook friend. Our friendship pre-dated the social networking madness phase, but like some hidden ancient city in […]

At the end of the school year, LAUSD, the second largest school district in the U.S., canceled summer school for K-8 students. Reports estimate 225,000 students affected, but surely this is an understatement because every child is affected when children in their class have not received the instruction they need. This summer, my […]

The 10th anniversary issue of Bunk Magazine is online with a new issue, featuring:
Los Wikiless Timespedia

The premise: The Los Angeles Times, to save its flagging enterprise, has relaunched itself in an entirely wiki format as The Los Wikiless Timespedia.

LA Times Switches to All-Wiki Format in 11th-Hour Battle for Life

In a desperate attempt to stop the involuntary leakage of its readership, the slightly less-old gray lady has tried the Depends of new media, embracing a technology that almost spelt its d-e-a-t-h in bright blue hyperlinked Arial.

The video collaborates with Michael Wesch’s Kansas State students, who, according to the megapopular video, used Google Docs to collaboratively edit a document, essentially conducting a survey and, presumably, designing the video itself.

Wesch’s students’ video offers itself as a glimpse of today’s students. However, unlike Wesch’s even more famous Web 2.0 video, “The Machine is Us/ing Us,” which seemed to both capture and promote an image of technoculture, this video offers itself as an image of contemporary students (not “KSU Students Today” or “American Students Today”) without reflecting on its own particularity, its own demographics.
