Week 8 has seen me recovering from the virtual ethnography of last week – and mopping up the mess. My lifestream has reflected this, which a continuing stream of 9/11 conspiracy theory related links and videos. I didn’t have time to embed all of the resources into the prezi that I used for the ethnography, so I spent some time getting it in place for future folks to spend time clicking about in.
Moving onwards, I’ve started to try to engage with the shift to Haraway and Hayles’ work – struggling rather a lot with Haraway in particular. As is usual in these circumstances I turn to Youtube (and others) to see what video materials I can find for (I hope) student-created work which might help help me overcome the feeling that I’m drowning in Harway’s language. I found a few useful videos to help me, but also a few quite pointedly satirising her work.
