Task Sheet

The Task Sheet allows Transliteracies Project developers to keep track of pending tasks and assignments. It is a temporary register of current activities and schedules in the project.

Potential Research Reports

The following people have expressed tentative interest in these areas and objects for study—and perhaps in developing them into research reports. Please note that nothing here is set in stone! Rather, this sheet is an internal document to help us keep organized about our interests.

Marc Breisinger: iPod as eBook

Monica Bulger: Study how students interact with online course material and whether this interaction affects academic performance.

Mike Godwin: Thermo Rewrite

Garnet Hertz: OkCupid.com, MySpace, Friendster, Facebook, Media Art, Net Art, Social Networking, Technical research related to other projects/reports

electronic book review: online journal for critical discussion about new media and electronic literature, Joseph Tabbi, editor; Bob Brown’s Readies machine: an avant-garde project described and planned in the early 1930s to create a reading machine that would use cinematic technology to make words move across a reading surface; Kybernekyia: Ezra Pound’s Canto LXXXI as “Hypervortext?: a teaching tool created by Ned Bates and Gail McDonald that present the canto as a hypertext.

John Roberts: Social semantic networks, or folksonomies. Sites like Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/) or Del.icio.us ( http://del.icio.us/) where the community is capable of defining meaning for content. These are similar to things like Wikipedia, though that is more of a community-supported blog.
