Worth: 10% Minimum Word Count: 600 words Maximum Word Count: 800 words This final module assignment has different guidelines and expectations than the previous academically framed assignments. This module response will take the form and feeling of a ‘Blog Post’ rather than a formal academic paper. It will give you an opportunity to showcase your own writing style, tone and flair (within some guidelines of course) to convince your reader of your standpoint. A blog (web-log) is a webpage of posts that show the most recent entry at the top. Blog posts can can be personal – like online diaries – or more formal and professional, depending on your audience. Anyone can have a blog and write a blog-post, as there are a lot of platforms available for any level of tech experience. Readers can usually respond by posting comments of their own (building community amongst bloggers). For some, blogging has lead to celebrity status or career opportunities. As such, blogging is a platform for you to consider – whether you want to discuss your food and fashion interests, review your favourite video games, market or ‘brand’ yourself and what you do, or give your insights about social issues. You might already be writing on micro-blogging platforms, such as Twitter or Tumblr, or perhaps Pownce or Jaiku. Successful bloggers have a clear sense of who their audience is, and what their voice is – their personal style and tone. They have an interesting approach to the topic and solid writing skills that convince people (these are ‘influencers’ in social networks). Many successful bloggers still follow a formal writing framework in their blog posts, with an introduction, discussion, and conclusion, which we will follow in this assignment. Watch the Video: The case for anonymity online Christopher “moot” Poole: Founder of 4chan a controversial, uncensored online imageboard, describes its subculture, some of the Internet “memes” it has launched, and the incident in which its users managed a very public, precision hack of a mainstream media website. The talk raises questions about the power — and price — of anonymity. In the video, Chris Poole/Moot argues that we need to have spaces and places online (sandboxes) where people can ‘be’ and ‘express’ without being defined or named (or judged!). In your ‘blog post’, you will either agree or disagree with Moot, and discuss two reasons why you agree or disagree with the having anonymous spaces online. Your submission will include at least two module five readings that work to support your assertions. Using these academic sources (properly) will validate and support your opinion (which then makes it more challenging for readers to disagree or counter-argue). Learning how to combine your standpoint with research/literature is a good practice to develop across all writing platforms. You become the reliable expert in your social network that people go to because your insights are trustworthy and credible.
