Well, the entire CWRL site was down for a couple of days because someone hacked a few of the older accounts. I never realized how much I rely on this blog to go back over my thoughts, copy and paste discussions, and examine shifts in my thinking. Fascinating, and I wish I had started doing this stuff earlier.
I've returned to Bakhtin's classic The Dialogic Imagination and am slowly working my way through it while simultaneously rereading articles on genre and activity for the chapters I'm currently drafting. Classes start Tuesday and it's possible that my grad course will make, so my reading list will possibly be dominated by those texts for a while.
In other news, I see that Jenny Formerly from the Blog is continuing my discussion of video games. I talked yesterday with Jason Craft about similar topics -- MMORPGs, mostly. There's an interesting field to research here that has mostly been elided in computers and writing discussions, don't you think?
