This is an interesting course run in association with Global Voices. "Transom is an online resource for storytellers, mostly audio-based but delving into the world of visual digital media as well. They recent put on a six-week online workshop – based entirely on Facebook – with several Rising Voices writers participating." Not everybody was happy participating via Facebook. "It is curious," said one partiocipant, "how some people really want to share their stories… [but] I wish my subjects would be more aware of all the privacy issues and other issues surrounding image rights and social networks." (Note: while 'nerve-racking' seems to be a commonly accepted form, in my view is is an eggcorn, based on a misunderstanding of the meaning of the words 'rack' and 'wrack', and should probably be expressed as 'nerve-wracking').
