Expected Discussion: Thursday, 30 September 1999
There is a growing tendency of pre-existing communities to use Web sites to build or strengthen those communities. Many such sites focus on a particular nationality. Spend about thirty minutes exploring one or more of the following community sites and be prepared to discuss the implications of such sites in class.
http://www.xuviet.org/about/staff.htm. A Vietnamese Web community
http://www.hookele.com/storyteller/talkstory/. Chat about Hawaiian culture, independence, and other issues.
http://www.moo.ca/home. Mostly young Canadians. Not very busy (at least when I checked).
You may also wish to look at some of the following sites, which provide information about some communities. In reading these sites, you should consider the intended audience of each page.
http://web.lemoyne.edu/~bucko/lakota.html. About the Lakota Nation.
http://www.indiancircle.com/. A Web ring of Indian Tribes.
http://www.delphi.com/. A large collection of synchronous and asynchronous chat.
http://www.fluxus.org/museum/index.html. A parody.
