The Craft of Meaning: A Brief History of Composition’s Future

Lately, I’ve been working on getting my digital portfolio ready for my job search this fall. It’s been both fascinating and painful to go back and see what I’ve produced as far as digital texts. I’m trying to clean them up as best I can, but most of the time, I don’t have the original project files. This is really an important issue for digital preservation scholars AND producers of new media texts.

Anyway, here’s a text I ran across from a seminar in Digital Media and Composition at the University of Louisville (instructor: Debra Journet) in May of 2007. Because of a time crunch back then, I failed to appropriately cite the films I sampled from the Prelinger Archives, as well as those I sampled from YouTube. I’ve since updated the YouTube samples, and I’ve included a couple more recent videos because I’d always considered the first version unfinished. So, I’ve still got to look up the credits for the Prelinger Archives and the music I used from Jamendo, but for now, this will have to suffice.

For other digital texts I’ve produced, please visit the Digital Media Texts page here on this blog.

As always, if you have any questions or comments, or want to link to something (especially of your own) that you see as relevant or related, please do leave a comment or link here. I’ll do my best to respond to everything as quickly as I can. Thanks. T.
