I really want your blogs to be diaries about reading and analyzing the assigned work in the blogoshpere!!! If you want to write about another things, that's great, that's wonderful; but to satisfy the work requirements, your blogs should have observations and analysis that specifically reference the blogs we're discussing. So, from last week's assignment, you ought to have some specific comments about BoingBoing, DailyKos, dooce and one or two others of the top blogs. It doesn't have to be a ton, but enough to show me that you're reading and thinking.
And this week, you ought to be posting specific comments, first on DailyKos (again) and then on some of the proto-bloggers we're looking at.

The other assignment this week -- as you'll see in the syllabus -- is to begin tracking a meme. That means identifying an idea or a shred of thought that has a profile in the blog world and noting its progress. Not unlike what I did Thursday night with the picture of Bush asking to go to the bathroom. How does a meme like that one make its way around the blogs. How is it vetted?

Could you give a little more info on the meme idea? I tried to find a meme -- that Bin Laden was ill -- but it didn't show up anywhere. If we find an identifiable meme, what exactly are we supposed to do?
