I like Ray’s latest assignment. (For T’s class) It was to read six articles, predict the age/kind of person of the author, then research and find out who the writer actually is.
I usually do not sit down and read six articles. I started with articles that I read recently and liked. I needed four more articles so I followed the author’s links on the sidebar. Upon this was DISCOVERY!
Turns out, I am actually interested in articles that interest him too. This phenomena of cyber inter-connectedness was only a rumor before this. After reading the sixth article, I thought, “I enjoyed reading. I learned some things!”
While engaging in this assignment, I felt compelled to find something out. It was like a game trying to uncover the author’s biographical information using their words, references, appropriateness of slang, and blogging finesse as clues. I was noticing the rhythm of the text and wanting more of the groove.
This might be a new stage for my brain. For other’s too?
