It was good to be back in symposium mode this week. A lot of discussion on Hypertext and where the future is leading us. The discussion left me thinking that the whole Networked Media course is operating like hypertext, where we have to feed the beast to help it grow and if we’re not making our own links and explorations the course will be stagnant. – that we get to define where to next and which parts of the course we link together and build on.
I also really liked that Adrian pointed out literature is a key part of our nostalgia and attachment to print. I’d never made that link in my mind but while I LOVE books and the memories I can get from picking up a book I read on a certain holiday or the comfort from the well worn pages of my favourites, I have absolutely no issue with text books and essays etc becoming strictly digital media.
