A Making: The Job Search and Our Work as Computer Compositionists
Amy C. Kimme Hea
"Haraway (1992) urges us to recall that "[l]ives are built; so we had best become good craftspeople with the other worldly actants in the story" (p. 299). This hypertext is about job seeking, technology, and potential roles for graduate students and faculty mentors, but another purpose, a selfish one perhaps, is revisiting my position as a computer compositionist and discovering that position as a "making"—thinking critically about my past and future."
When Blogging Goes Bad: A Cautionary Tale About Blogs, Emailing Lists, Discussion, and Interaction

possible to see blogs as a collaborative or especially 'interactive'
writing environment. (2) Or, more accurately,
I've come to believe we shouldn't substitute blogs for other electronic
writing tools that foster discussion and interactive writing, particularly
email lists, commonly known as listservs."
