A New Kind of Collaboration

This site, "Modern: the only course that Matters" (mwh.posterous.com) will be a clearing house for all things related to our course. Participation is meant to be spontaneous, frequent, and simple.

In order for you to contribute, simply send an email to: post@mwh.posterous.com from wherever you are: home, school, iPhone, Crackberry, mobile phone. Attach a picture, a song, a video, a document or a link to any of these and the website will take care of the rest.

Posts are moderated by me (Mr > Bolos). What this means is that I will generally approve anything you send that is not offensive or hurts others. I will try to approve posts as quickly as possible -- certainly before class begins each day. Comments on posts are NOT moderated: this is a place for you to exercise your best judgment. Would you say the same thing to the poster in a face-to-face situation?

Check this site every day. I may assign extra credit to frequent contributors.

Homework: week of 9/14

I will be collecting homework on Friday of this week. Please make sure you are absolutely CLEAR on how it is to be completed. It does not need to be typed, but if your handwriting cannot be read by me, you might have to. If you need clarification, ask me in class or make an appointment with me outside of class.
