Other bricks in the wall.

Media Studies Students,

To receive credit for blogging, you must follow these steps:

1) Set the time zone of your blog to the time zone in which we actually live: that is to say, to Eastern Standard Time.

2) Complete your blog's profile section.

3) Link to the other 20 blogs in your class.

4) Post a legitimate entry before each deadline listed below.

5) Post comments to a set number of your peers' blogs. (We will set a number in class.)

On each of the following dates, you must post to your blog by 3:05 PM.

Monday, January 8
Wednesday, January 10
Friday, January 12
Monday, January 15
Wednesday, January 17
Friday, January 19
Monday, January 22

You may post as often as you like. As for what a "legitimate entry" is:

-It may not contain inappropriate language or subject matter.
-It must be long enough to demonstrate that tender, loving care was taken in its creation.
-It must be at least marginally related to your blog's focus.

Update: You will also be given the chance to search through the blogs on this site, either by clicking "Next Blog" at the top of the page or by searching for specific elements; you will then link to the blogs you like, comment on them, etc.

"Why, anybody can have a brain.

"That's a very mediocre commodity. Every pusillanimous creature that crawls on the Earth or slinks through slimy seas has a brain.

"Back where I come from, we have universities, seats of great learning, where men go to become great thinkers. And when they come out, they think deep thoughts and with no more brains than you have.

"But they have one thing you haven't got: a diploma."
