One note to the estimable professors: I like the idea of hosting the course on a MySpace page, but the resulting requirement to take out an account to read the detailed entries is unfortunate. I’ve taken out enough fake-and-quickly-forgotten MySpace accounts for a lifetime.

  1. One of the other factors that I was thinking about is that sites such as MySpace and Facebook are often blocked with organizational firewalls. I cannot access either of them from work, which then limits course access on another level.

  3. Charles — good luck with the series, I wish I could be there.

    Jeffrey — my read was that the choice of MySpace as platform was a bit of pranksterism, but your point is well taken. Then again, you are in NYC, if you wished to attend… cool town you got there!
