*waving from 850 miles west*
I’m Krista Kennedy, and I guess I’m one of the more distributed elements of the course since I’m joining you from Minnesota. I’m a first-year Ph.D. student in the UMN Rhetoric Department, and I usually claim that my research deals with intersections of networked rhetorics and intellectual property law. More specifically, I study blogs and wikis as sites of the information commons. I’m also doing some intellectual property coursework in the UMN Law School. My other interests include rhetorical theory, authorship, history of intellectual property, and online pedagogy.
I just moved to Minnesota in July from Little Rock, which means that I lived slightly below Derek. (I basically moved directly upward in a straight line for 750 miles, and find that I quite like the tundra.) I’ve been reading him and Collin and Becky for a while now, and when I heard about this course I got immensely jealous of all you Syracusans and finagled my way into a spot. My blog, Areté, has been going on for a couple of years. If for some ungodly reason you find that you need to know more about me, there’s an About page on the sidebar. I’m looking forward to getting to know all of you!
