Martha Burtis discusses the use of "the Trojan Horse approach" to implementing Domain of One's Own (DoOO) at a college or university. "Jim Groom has talked periodically about ePortfolios being a Trojan Horse that allowed us to pilot Domain of One’s Own at UMW," she says in this speech transcript. "[It] represents a kind of pragmatism that I think we need to consider and unpack." It forces us to think about the naming of things, the building of things, and even the breaking of things. "When we start down these paths — these more complex paths and conversations about what it means to name and to build and to break and to fix, we come to a far richer place than just a space where students can build beautiful, rich, powerful Web sites. We are in the territory now of not just naming or building or even breaking but the territory of knowing the Web."
