Assistant Professor of English Matthew Kirschenbaum will discuss his involvement in the blogging community, delivering an overview of blogging for beginners by first going behind the scenes in his own blogs and then discussing the potential of blogs for teaching, their unprecedented role in covering the war in Iraq, and suggesting why blogs just might give us a glimpse into the future of digital discourse.
Update, 1:00 pm: Matt is apparently blogging live as he presents his talk (isn’t TrackBack a wonderful thing?), so go leave a comment by 2:00 pm EST. And if you UMD folks come to my site while the talk is happening, feel free to leave a comment here.
Update, 5:00 pm: Ah, well. Apparently no one noticed my comment on Matt’s blog or the trackback while his talk was going on.
