discuss the reading and share your ideas on participatory culture. The ideas shared on the VT so far are great examples of what can be done when every day people participate and get involved in a cause. I especially love the KickStarter campaign shared by Ryland.

I can’t wait to read your blogs this week and see how many of you were able to embed images or video to enahcne your message. I also look forward to reading the comments you are leaving on your classmates blogs.

See you all on Thursday.


Sorry for the double posting, but wanted to make sure you all see this.
