Mein Wunderkammer

Executive description

By using a separate blog to host this project, I can provide a different look to the interesting parts of the internet and relate academic readings to them. A blog will work best for this because sometimes informal writing is necessary for the subject at hand, and I want to re-arrange my "wunderkammer" myself.


With my blog, I intend to document what exactly interests me about the internet. I can research the reasons why some people can't get enough of browsing online. I will find others who share this fascination of all things online. I will get into why I believe that social media is just Life 2.0, a natural (evolutionary?) step in the growth of our society.
I will start by I am going to rely on our readings from class as well as MICHEL FOUCAULT's Of Other Spaces. I will also be reading from the works of Jean Baudrillard, including his Simulacra and Simulations .

I will create and develop an online "wunderkammer" (cabinet of curiosities). I believe that a blog would be better suited for this project because I can call the shots in how it is formatted. Much like the curiosity cabinets of old, I can also be the sole person to decide what goes in or comes out, what gets prominently displayed, and what it will be about.

Weekly Reports

I will post to my blog William J. Heinecke

Contract for Grade

I will be contracting for 250 points. I believe this level of involvement is achievable, since I am online already. I will post at least once a day a "curiosity" with a description of what it is and why it is interesting to me or to others. I will also post to my blog William J. Heinecke about my progress and the ways that different reading from the class relate to what I am doing. I will do these longer posts at least three times a week, minimum 500 words, by midnight on Monday (Tuesday morning). By having a plan like this, I'm hoping for this to become a hub for people seeking to find the most interesting parts of the internet.
