Online discussion and digital literacy

January 5, 2010 by


I’m just throwing this out as a thought, but in seeing a good deal of activity lately in the way of discussions about “Black Confederates” a couple of things come to mind… but this isn’t so much about “Black Confederates” as a focus of discussion as it is about the use of technology to discuss […]

An unconventional use of blog space — the rough draft of my hypertext nonfiction, “Being Cenantua”

April 20, 2008 by


It’s most certainly a work in-progress, but for what it’s worth, I’m opening access to my hypertext nonfiction, “Being Cenantua.” Personally, I consider the site currently on par with a construction site in an early stage (READER BEWARE — there are “dead links.” O.K., by definition, they don’t necessarily qualify as “dead links,” the hyperlinked […]

Virtual booksignings

March 8, 2008 by


I have to admit, this was new to me. I had never heard of virtual booksignings until I first saw a listing for such a thing on Civil War Interactive. I followed the link from CWI to and was amazed. According to the website Virtual Book Signing™ provides the excitement of attending a booksigning, […]

I think that Thomas Jefferson would have loved hypertext

March 7, 2008 by


I’ve been meaning to mention this for a couple of weeks and am just today getting around to it, but I can’t help but think that Thomas Jefferson would have loved the power of hypertext.

Hypertextualizing personal memory of the Civil War

More thoughts on digital history as interactive narrative

February 23, 2008 by


With an ever-pressing desire to explore new ways of presenting history, I find it difficult reading through George P. Landow’s Hypertext 3.0 without continually trying to figure out how the theories and applications can work within the practice of digital history. This is especially the case when considering that relatively few digital history sites have gone […]

History as interactive narrative!? Why not?

February 22, 2008 by


After developing an annotated bibliography of digital history resources this past fall, over  Christmas break I finally took the time to read Digital History (Cohen and Rosenzweig). I enjoyed it greatly! However, after having read this book, I was left curious as to why Janet Murray (Hamlet on the Holodeck) had only received mention on one […]

Trying this once again

February 17, 2008 by


Well, my first effort at moving forward with a blog just didn’t get anywhere. I guess I could blame the rigors of full-time graduate studies for the lack of postings in about three months. Yet, at the same time, it was because of graduate studies that I developed an interest in the potential of blogs. So, […]
