Week 2: Making Connections & Putting it Out There

I really enjoyed the discussions in seminar today. some excellent points being raised about our transforming relationship to the creation, practice and sharing of images online in response to the A Life More Photographic paper. Thanks to everyone who showed up and took part. Project 1: the Pinterest projects [the ones we had time to see] were really interesting viewing and represented a range of responses to what at first might seemed like a simple task but that in fact reveals some edifying distinctions in the way we think about our self, society and what it means to be networked.
