Diane Holmes has coined a new word: blogbleary. I think I felt that way a little last night. Just getting the feel for a few of the FOC08 blogs.
For the second time in two days I had to dictionary.com a blog name. The insouciant Existentialist – “marked by blithe unconcern” – sxyshandy.vox.com/ Trying to post a comment they asked me to join Vox. (I already am, from some distant past activity) it was just too much for me. A comment I would have added to the insouciant existentialist
and (you say) inject some structure in nurturing online communities
Is this a good thing?
Is it possible?
I notice in valerie’s Blog valerie.posterous.com/herding-cats she refers to working with communities as herding cats. I am sure there is another blog in the FOC08 list with this in the title, but in my blog surfing I have lost it.
Lurking. Deb has commented on Shane’s post. I do not see Lurking as a problem, but if we all did it . . I vividly remember my first online class where I was there as a helper to the lecturer. Met someone in the loos. They said “I have said things online I never wojuld have said F2F” and “I like having time to think”
Now I think enough. Blogbleary – but stimulated. Interested to note there were two longer, deeper posts that I just cannot engage with yet – better a serious read after a morning coffee.
What do I want to know?
