Web 2.0: A Modern Manuscript


I have chosen to write my third commentary about how web 2.0 is bringing together many aspects of writing technologies, past and present.

Because I wanted to embed Twitter and Blog feeds into the text to support my argument for changing writing spaces, I had to set this up in my own WordPress. UBC’s wouldn’t let me embed the feeds.

    Thanks for that Chris – I loved scrolling down and reflecting on the progress – but the continuities as well – from the scroll to wordpress!

    Hi Sheila,
    Thanks for the comment. I’m glad you enjoyed it.


  3. Hi Chris,

    I really enjoyed reading your commentary. I also did mine on Alexander’s papers. It is true that the having our text in blogs is giving an openess to our text as it is possible to go back and forth, here and there, to get more ideas from other blogs, and so on. This openess might also become a difficulty since it might be complicated to recall where particular information was read. I wonder what type of organization can be needed in order to re-trace where we have been… or if it is even possible to do.

    We definitely share a few opinions. A definite benefit of the internet is the ability to interact with your audience. The RSS feeds you put up on the side are great. Lost a few minutes perusing.
