  1. Dear Helen
    This is a really interesting artefact which I strayed upon on your blog, I hope you don’t mind.

    I saw your post on the EDC main page which mentioned feeling a little intimidated by the thought of us looking at each other’s blogs. I feel the same way and try to put it to the back of my mind so it doesn’t freeze me up completely! On balance, I think it is a good thing because it is fascinating to see how we each have different spaces and interpretations of the course.

    This clip was interesting because of the clichéd depiction of disembodied faces online and the embodied person offline as if we are only part of ourselves when we interact on the web.

    Your site is great by the way!


    1. Hi Cathy,

      Am pleased that you have roamed into my site! And thank you for being so kind!

      I agree: it’s fascinating to see just how different everyone’s lifestreams are and what others are focusing on.

      That’s a really interesting interpretation of the video; I was interested in it as a marketing tool and hadn’t considered what else it suggested about our online experiences.

      I’m off to have a look around your lifestream now. Hope your ethnography is going well.
