It’s nice when you don’t have to read papers or blogs because your friends fill your Facebook feed with everything you need to know/see/read/hear.
The following things were all either liked by at least five people or were posted by several of my friends separately at various points throughout the day.
And my treat: Radio 3 on David Foster Wallace.
So anyway, this is part of why I get pissed off at people who slate Facebook as a waste of time. It’s a communication tool! If you demonise it then you’re unimaginative and undisciplined. I would’ve got very little of this and definitely not the mix that I got without being on Facebook today. (What that says about me is another thing, but yeah.)
For anyone interested in my teaching stuff, tomorrow I will be breaking apart Raymond Carver’s sentences (see previous post for rough preview of this). Last week I made up some autobiographical Black Swan slash to terrify my students. All in a semester’s work.
