Frame This!

Stephen Downes, After 5, May 01, 2003
Commentary by Stephen Downes

In this editorial for the New Brunswick e-learning newsletter, After 5, I describe how the common conception of weblogs as the uninteresting personal rants of the disaffected has evolved into a powerful information sharing and community building tool. "Because they tap into the heart of one of the web's great strengths, personal expression and control, and because they draw on the communication capacities inherent in an inter-network, they have become an effective means of distribution any digital content and at the same time a highly selective filtering and classification system for that content." A long list of references and resources at the end of the article has been clipped, but should be available Monday.
