    • Chapter 1, Branding Yourself
      Chapter 1 of Branding Yourself asks you to think about how to describe yourself, your interests, skills, and aspirations. It encourages us to think about self-promotion without necessarily "bragging." Think about the ideas that you would like to associate with yourself, and write briefly about them here. What are your career goals? What qualities are important for you to possess/develop? What do you see as your personal brand?

    • Field Research Progress Reports
      There is no reading assigned for this week. However, I would like you to post, sometime this week, a progress report regarding your Field Research project. You should discuss the field you're focusing on, the people/organizations/accounts you're looking at, what approach or angle you're taking, etc. Be as thorough as you can at this point. The projects themselves are due in a few weeks, so you should be gradually coming to know the focus of those projects. As I mentioned in class, the FR project is due the week before Spring Break. (Thursday, March 6th)

    • Mecologies
      Use this space to post your "mecology" progress reports. Please think about both where you're at with it, and where you need to get by the end of the semester. You don't need to cover all the perspectives that I outlined on this week's handout, but you should try to engage at least a couple of them. I don't expect more than a page or two here, less if you decide to do some visual mapping.

    • One of My Social Media Follows
      Choose one person (or organization) that you follow through social media, someone you believe is particularly effective, creative, engaging, etc. Introduce us to that person, and talk about how he/she/it achieves that quality. This person/account does not need to be connected to your Field Research project.

    • Rheingold, Ch. 3: Participation Power
      Write a Forum post (a page or so) that takes up the ideas in this chapter. For example, you might look at what Rheingold (via Scoble) says about curation and write about how the person/account you discussed last week does so successfully. Or, following R's discussion of "Twitter literacy," consider what other social media literacies you might think of: is there a "Pinterest literacy," an "Instagram literacy," etc., and if so, what might one of them entail? Feel free to take these ideas in another direction entirely, too. Read the entire chapter, of course, but it's okay to focus on one or two points for your post here.

    • Social Media Inventory
      Construct an Inventory of your social media use and post it here. What platforms and applications do you use, and which are central or primary for your current online presence? How do you access your platforms, and what effect does that have on your choices? What do people find when they look for you online? Google yourself, and make note of the results on the first couple of pages–you do not need to post this, but it may be useful for you to screen capture or download the search results for later reference. Your Inventory should be primarily explanatory, but you may also wish to think about your goals for this course in these terms.
