Blogs, culture and controversy…
Remember those heady days not so long ago when we first stepped into the blogosphere and blogged every little detail of our Warwick (and not so Warwick) lives? The days when Sam Hates was just germinating, and the likes of Dan Lawrence and Holly Cruise just finding their satirical feet?
Well, it has been a good 2 years and more now for some of us, and others use Live Journal or various other programmes, and as I’m sitting my Culture and Controvery exam on Thursday which contains a question related to modern technologies and language (and possibly the learning thereof), what are peoples views on this little section of our vast, hypermedia-rife world?
I’d greatly appreciate responses from anyone who reads/writes/hates blogs and online journals;
What are they good for?
What are they not so good for?
Should they be encouraged or not?
Do you think there’s scope for them as learning tools for students or is PDP just another word for “Ranting about my own miserable existance”?
You won’t be quoted directly, I’m just curious, and if you don’t want your opinion shown here, you can always email me via the address in the Life of Bowdy section.
Cheers m’dears. There’ll be a pretty icture on Deviant soon, as some kind of reward!
