ENG 371WR: Writing for Nonreaders in the Postprint Era M-W-F: 11:00 a.m.–12:15 p.m. Instructor: Robert Lanham
As print takes its place alongside smoke signals, cuneiform, and hollering, there has emerged a new literary age, one in which writers no longer need to feel encumbered by the paper cuts, reading, and excessive use of words traditionally associated with the writing trade. Writing for Nonreaders in the Postprint Era focuses on the creation of short-form prose that is not intended to be reproduced on pulp fibers. Instant messaging. Twittering. Facebook updates. These 21st-century literary genres are defining a new "Lost Generation" of minimalists who would much rather watch Lost on their iPhones than toil over long-winded articles and short stories. Students will acquire the tools needed to make their tweets glimmer with a complete lack of forethought, their Facebook updates ring with self-importance, and their blog entries shimmer with literary pithiness.

Immer wieder befassen sich Politiker mit dem Internet, ohne wirklich etwas davon zu verstehen. Heraus kommen Gesetze, bei denen Netzbürger nicht wissen, ob sie lachen oder weinen sollen. Die aktuelle Zensuraktion von Ministerin von der Leyen ist ein Beispiel.
Immer wieder befassen sich Politiker mit dem Internet, ohne wirklich etwas davon zu verstehen. Heraus kommen Gesetze, bei denen Netzbürger nicht wissen, ob sie lachen oder weinen sollen. Die aktuelle Zensuraktion von Ministerin von der Leyen ist ein Beispiel. Doch jetzt gibt es DIE LÖSUNG. Wie jeder weiß, können Politiker Computer nicht bedienen. Deswegen bekommen sie Internetseiten immer nur als Ausdruck ihrer Bediensteten zu Gesicht. Man spricht deshalb auch von den sogenannten Internet-Ausdruckern. Nun machen wir es ganz einfach. Mit einem minimalen Schnippsel CSS-Code schützen wir alle Seiten vor dem Ausdrucken. Und schwupps - kein Politiker wird jemals wieder eine Internet-Seite zu Gesicht bekommen.

The New YorkerKenyan Birth Certificate Generator - Make your own! Invalidating legitimate presidencies since 2009!
We see what we want to see, we hear what we want to hear. "conservatives were more likely to report that Colbert only pretends to be joking and genuinely meant what he said while liberals were more likely to report that Colbert used satire and was not serious when offering political statements. "
Last week, Stephen Colbert revisited a segment he had done on Florida Representative Bill Posey, who sponsored a bill that "would require future presidential candidates to provide a copy of their original birth certificate," in order to put insane rumors of President Barack Obama's birthplace to bed. Colbert thought a similar measure should be taken to end the whisperings that Posey was a human-alligator hybrid. Posey, in response to Colbert, said, "I expected there would be some civil debate about it, but it wasn't civil...There is no reason to say that I'm the illegitimate grandson of an alligator." And one wondered, "Does Posey not realize that Colbert is not speaking in earnest? His reaction seems uniquely stupid!" Stupid, yes. But apparently it's not unique at all, according to a study from The Ohio State University, which proves, with math and stuff, that lots of conservatives seem to not understand the intrinsic, underlying joke of The Colbert Report:MADATOMS - POPULAR RELIGIONS REFERENCE MANUAL by Tim Saccardo - Artist: Edwin Servaas
'This sentence contains a provocative statement that attracts the readers’ attention, but really only has very little to do with the topic of the blog post. This sentence claims to follow logically from the first sentence, though the connection is actually rather tenuous. This sentence claims that very few people are willing to admit the obvious inference of the last two sentences, with an implication that the reader is not one of those very few people. This sentence expresses the unwillingness of the writer to be silenced despite going against the popular wisdom. This sentence is a sort of drum roll, preparing the reader for the shocking truth to be contained in the next sentence. This sentence contains the thesis of the blog post, a trite and obvious statement cast as a dazzling and controversial insight.'

This really doesn't pertain to class discussions or my cultural analysis, but this is a Canadian artist and I think her work is quite honest and appropriate for a gender class. This artist has appropriated the bright colours of the famous Disney princesses to the lives of real women. She juxtaposes these easily recognizable characters (Belle, Cinderella, Ariel, Snow White, etc.) with modern issues (War, cosmetic surgery, captivity, and motherhood) to have quite startling results. I think her message is quite simple: There's more to life for women than "happily ever after". Some of these images are horrific and incredibly disheartening. --Jami McFarland

We're not all "Jesus Freaks" who run around screaming about how everyone should "Judge not lest ye be judged," whine "Blessed are the meek" all the time, or drone on and on about how we're all equal in the eyes of God! Some of us are just trying to be good, honest folks who believe the unbaptized will roam the Earth for ages without the comfort of God's love when Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior returns on Judgment Day to whisk the righteous off to heaven.
Everybody has this image of "crazy Christians" based on what they hear in the media, but it's just not true. Most Christians are normal, decent folks. We don't all blindly follow a bunch of outdated biblical tenets or go all fanatical about every bit of dogma. What I'm trying to say is, don't let the actions of a vocal few color your perceptions about what the majority of us are like.End Times | The Daily Show | Comedy Central

"Jason Jones visits the the New York Times' offices to find out why the last of a dying breed prefers aged news to real news. "
The Daily Show's segment on the decline of the New York Times ("reporting the news, making stuff up, getting us into war") is fantastic - and reaches its peak when Jason Jones asks an editor to describe the appeal of "aged news," and when the editor asks him to explain, he challenges the editor to find a single thing in the paper that happened that day.

parody of Maureen Dowd's Twitter interview - great!
"I sat down with Mr. Bell, 39, and his assistant Thomas Watson, 22, and asked them to explain why they shouldn't be condemned to a slow, painful death. ME: The telephone seems like letter-writing without the paper and pen. Is there any message that can't wait for a passenger pigeon? BELL: Possibly the message I'd like to deliver to you right now. ME: Did you know you were designing a toy for bored housewives and the indolent rich? BELL: Actually, I was trying to help deaf people."
"ME: I would rather be flayed alive and gradually guillotined than use a telephone."Ian Bogost - Cow Clicker
The making of cow clicker, and a look at the trend of social games
In which he describes the hows and whys.
Une excellente crique et analyse sur les "jeux" sociaux.
Compulsion explains the feeling of struggling to return to something in spite of ourselves. Its flipside involves the disrespect of time that we might otherwise spend doing more valuable things—or even just pondering the thoughtful and unexpected ideas that an asynchronous game might raise. Social games so covet our time that they abuse us while we are away from them, through obligation, worry, and dread over missed opportunities.
"You get a cow. You can click on it. In six hours, you can click it again. Clicking earns you clicks. You can buy custom "premium" cows through micropayments (the Cow Clicker currency is called "mooney"), and you can buy your way out of the time delay by spending it. You can publish feed stories about clicking your cow, and you can click friends' cow clicks in their feed stories. Cow Clicker is Facebook games distilled to their essence." -- Reminds me of the game where you do the dishes.
The dialectic between theory and practice often collapses into a call and response panegyric. This in mind, I thought it might be productive to make an example that would act as its own theory.
