Brett Attwood's Hub-blog course in convergent journalism. The example of peripheral studnet blogs that link to the "mother ship" is interesting and simple. It gives the students ownership of there work and the ability to "dock" wherever they like.
The list of names under Journ 475 student blogs are the links to student blogs that connect to this course. This is a very simple design that allows the student to keep their work and "dock" when necessary. The student nblog therefore becomes a space to document learning , process, and colloaborate continually rather than a dropbox/file cabnet for the benefit of faculty controlled semester based classes.
This is a good intro to semiotics. When you get to the page be sure to click the button at the bottom that says "click to continue" it takes you through an interesting example that deconstructs an image that appeared on the front page of US News.

From the Techapresident post:
"Does the Internet Matter?": That's the title of a new report out from Temple University's Institute for Business and Information Technology. Making use of some techPresident data, Temple's Sunil Wattal, David Schuff, and Munir Mandviwalla considered how social media in particular shaped the '08 presidential primaries. Their conclusion? While YouTube and MySpace may help lesser-known candidates find footing, only blogs seem to correlate with boosts in Gallup poll numbers. ( You might notice that the report requires a password, but we've got one for you: "templeowls.")
