Blog posts will begin soon for this class.
This is a PUBLIC blog. You may use a pseudonym. We will talk about it in class on Tuesday.
If you have serious concerns about privacy and are nervous about posting at all, send me an email, and I’ll give you an extension on this assignment; we can talk more next week.
