This is our last full week together, and of course the first two parts of your final project — your blog post and your slideshow — are due this Friday at midnight. (The syllabus originally said 5 p.m., but I’m giving you a few extra hours.) Please go over the guidelines carefully. Because I want you to have as much time as possible to do a good job on your projects, I am not going to ask you to do any other work outside of class.
Today I would like to renew a discussion we had about comments. We’ll be talking about this story in today’s New York Times and looking at some other material as well.
On Wednesday, we’ll be talking about entrepreneurship, so please do the reading in the syllabus. Our final guest speaker of the semester will be Dan Gregory, of Northeastern’s School of Technological Entrepreneurship. Please try to be thinking about how you might want to turn your blog into a business. What do you offer that no one else has? What could you offer?
