Counterfactual Bonanza!

What an amazing week we had last week! I hoped our counterfactual identity projects would help us think about the hybridic, multiple, mixed reality ways we develop, express & explore identity in the 21st century. I hoped it would be an opportunity to think about creating narratives and considering truth & fake, fiction & non-fiction. But I really never imagined that nearly a dozen class members would wind up with one or more of their very own doppelgangers! What a fascinating life of its own this took on.

Meanwhile, we offered you the opportunity to consider the coin of our 21st century realm, Page Rank, and to try a little SEO/Google Bombing in pursuit of it. Some of you went for Page Rank supplemented by Facebook Friends and Twitter followers.
