Accounts

We will be logging in and out of a variety of sites and platforms this semester. I have set up this page as hub of sorts that will make it easier to access a particular site, especially early in the semester. Gradually, you should bookmark the web addresses in a manner that fits your emerging online practices, either in a social bookmarking platform (e.g., Delicious or Diigo), in your web browser, or both. It is best if your accounts are publicly accessible because this will make it much easier for others in the class to interact with you. If, however, you prefer to create and maintain a private account, please realize this choice will significantly impact your experience with a given networked writing platform.

Blogs
To subscribe to everyone's blogging activity using Google Reader, go to the public feed I created and click on the RSS icon in your browser's address bar. I have also created a second public feed you can subscribe to consisting of various blog entries that might be of interest to you this semester.

Twitter
Subscribing to Twitter activity streams is best accomplished by "following" other users. Learn more at the Twitter Basics Help page. Numerous other options are available for interacting with Twitter users, including Tweetdeck and Twitterfall.

Delicious
To subscribe to everyone's Delicious activity using Google Reader, go to the public feed I created and click on the RSS icon in your browser's address bar.

Diigo
To subscribe to everyone's Delicious activity using Google Reader, go to the public feed I created and click on the RSS icon in your browser's address bar.

Flickr
To subscribe to everyone's Delicious activity using Google Reader, go to the public feed I created and click on the RSS icon in your browser's address bar.

Other Accounts
To subscribe to everyone's Delicious activity using Google Reader, go to the public feed I created and click on the RSS icon in your browser's address bar.

As the semester progresses and as the need presents itself, I may use this space for indexing the various platforms individuals are using (e.g., blog URLs, Twitter accounts, etc.). If you have ideas about collections of links you would like to see here, please share them.
