Exploring the Chicago Cultural Center

Our final project in class is a group blog where we are Exploring the Chicago Cultural Center. There are several posts up now and we’ll be adding content frequently over the next two weeks. We’ll be pre-viewing and reviewing events in the space and looking at the history and structure of the place itself. Please do take a look and leave a comment or two.

In class this week, Sam presented our single Blog Talk. She presented Peanut Butter Fingers, an interesting cross between a personal blog and a healthy eating/living blog.

Our guest speaker this week was Keidra Chaney of The Learned Fangirl. She mentioned a bunch of interesting sites during her talk that I wanted to document for my own purposes, and this is as good a place to do that as anywhere:

This idea of the “note I’m keeping for myself, but I might as well share it with others”, has anyone expressed that more eloquently? Of course they have. Long-time blogger Cory Doctorow wrote in 2002: My Blog, My Outboard Brain.

Blog Talks

Every week a couple of students in our class are presenting favorite and/or interesting blogs. Perhaps they will be of interest to you as well. Here’s what we’ve seen so far this semester and I’ll post future weeks’ Blog Talks throughout the semester.
