- I have to say, I thought twice about commenting. Since, well, you say not to read the comments. Thank you for 1) making me think and 2) giving me an excellent entry point for beginning the school year journaling. I plan to have the questions posed in the vids be Journal #1 and the last one - in any form the students wish.Jul 10, 2014
- :) #clmooc is not a place where that's the case! I am glad this gave you some ideas!I do read the comments LOL, but some people have the stance that comments don't matter, so I put it out there. It's an interactive process for me, but not for everyone, and there IS a point where commenting can be counterproductive on blogs, butJul 10, 2014
- Susan - this is great work (both the making and reflecting). Your daughter's work is indeed an inspiration as well.
I love the cross-out you bare exposed here, which adds another foregrounded layer to the ? of "hacking". Every time we edit our words, it is a form of hacking?
It is so intriguing to me that you found the second hack a more "authentic" one because of the nonlinearity of your writing and the resulting increased ambiguity.Jul 11, 2014
- Thanks for looking at all of it!
I like it when people use the cross-out in their writing - it helps me connect to it as a real person. So I wanted to try it out.
The second one felt more like a "hack," but the first one felt more like "me." 😄Jul 11, 2014
- I like the cross out as a technique too! I should use it more often, but I tinker with it here and there. It adds another layer to the meaning for sure.
Interesting that the distance from yourself felt like a more authentic hack….is more aesthetic ambiguity connected to a text having more of "a life of it's own" (rather than the life of authorial intent) . Just thinking out loud here….(as usual).Jul 11, 2014
