I am too distractable sometimes

I have a three hour break from my last class until ds106 which one would think would leave plenty of time to read three articles for class tonight and then blog about them.

But today I was distracted. First it was a surprise skype chat from my friend in Australia (it’s Australia day: Ozzie Ozzie Ozzie, Oy, Oy, Oy!) who is rarely on the internet (she didn’t even have a computer when she met me, the horror!) and then the first article was EVEN MORE distracting!

“Web 2.0 Storytelling: Emergence of A New Genre” by Bryan Alexander and Alan Levine has a host of different and cool links that they talk about in their article. So what do I do? I click them of course and spend over an hour looking at all these things I have never seen before!

I’m obsessed with this site right now. Also this is funny and reminds me of “The Digital Story of Nativity”

So while I managed to finish the first article, the other two have fallen by the wayside for now. I will post later tonight my thoughts on all three. And now to class!

  1. The Digital Nativity story is GREAT. I love when Joseph buys animals on farmville. Oh, religion in the modern world! I bet God facebook chats w/ Jesus and says, “where u @?” and Jesus says, “check my 4sqr.”

  2. I did the same thing of clicking on all the links in the article. Except I had to bookmark them so I could go back because I didn’t have time to spend looking. Although, did you click on the one that pulls sentences that include the words “i feel” or “i’m feeling”? That was so cool.

    btw, on the Gold Coast we say “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi, Oi, Oi” haha
