The reason for Blogger over Wordpress is it’s ability for dumb phones to post and it’s not clear yet how many in the class will have smartphones. That said, Wordpress is a much richer system (although I’ve not found it’s iPhone app very reliable—but maybe there’s a better app since I last tried it). My plan was to begin more serious posting a week before the class and continue through July. I’ll be sending out the handbook a week or so before the class as well. Just in case you have a particular interest in making a uDrift Wordpress blog there’s no reason we can’t have it for a project for your work and anyone that wants to join it — The first week is built around mobility in practice — meaning mobile blogging, Tweeting, and especially mapping/tracking — each person in the class will determine the format (blog, video, paper essay etc.) for their projects — and Wordpress would be a good home for mapping layers. Do you have experience with Wordpress mobile apps? D. Hi Mike,

Are you open to using Wordpress.com? It works well on mobile devices, and there are apps for posting and management. The price is certainly right, at free. Let me know, and if needed I can help set it up. Cheers. Mike Hi Dennis.

Comment on uDrift: Tracking Graffiti by Dennis Dollens http://edc.education.ed.ac.uk/dennisd/2012/03/31/udrift-tracking-graffiti/comment-page-1/#comment-1024 Dennis Dollens Mon, 02 Apr 2012 13:39:32 +0000 http://edc.education.ed.ac.uk/dennisd/?p=842#comment-1024 Gina, I was just headed out to update images of an urban squat, in the sense that it is liminal space — between legal / illegal; graffiti / sign; and architecture / political action, etc., it may fall well into the category of incidental landscape. If the squat still exists, I'll post later tonight or tomorrow.

Comment on INC — DIY Deleuze & Guattari Theory by Siân Bayne http://edc.education.ed.ac.uk/dennisd/2011/04/01/inc-%e2%80%94-diy-deleuze-guattari-theory/comment-page-1/#comment-216 Siân Bayne Wed, 06 Apr 2011 09:38:18 +0000 http://edc.education.ed.ac.uk/dennisd/2011/04/01/inc-%e2%80%94-diy-deleuze-guattari-theory/#comment-216 Nice post. I had never really reflected on the manifesto-like properties of A thousand plateaus before, but it makes me wonder whether there is scope for thinking seriously about the manifesto as a genre for academic writing. I know you have done work on this in the manifestweets, but beyond some of the 70s/80s/90s theoretical work which uses manifesto-like rhetoric as described here, we don't often see manifestos used as a formal writing practice for assessment. Yet, it requires such an astute distillation of theoretically-informed perspectives, and so many and multiple (if un-referenced) links to the broad literature, and so clear a positioning and criticial argument, it would be really intriguing to think of using it more within assessment practices. Thanks Dennis for yet more good thoughts, meshing so interestingly with current concerns here around our own manifesto : ) Nice post.
