Hypermedia: Some Technology, Some Implications (Fall 1999)

Class 11: Building Communities with Hypertext

Back to Selected Hyperfictions. On to National Online Communities.

Held Tuesday, September 28, 1999





MOOving Around

I thought it might be interesting to start class by visiting a MOO (probably LambdaMOO). I'll admit that the first time that I used a MOO was Monday, so I'm no expert, but we might try anyway. Otherwise, we'll just spend more time on discussion.


Today, Rebecca and I thought we might discuss the impact of hypertext, the Web, and the Internet on communities. How do these technologies support new communities or affect existing communities? Today we will begin by considering types of electronic communities. We will continue this discussion on Thursday.

Types of Online Communities

Questions on the Readings

Your message headers suggested some fairly negative reactions to the readings. I'm sorry to hear that, and I look forward to some more discussion as to why the reactions were so negative.

Questions from: Adam, Ellen, Jake, Kevin, Marti, Sean
