Here’s an email I received from Kevin Donovan, posted with Kevin’s permission:
I’m an undergraduate at Georgetown but have been following the class blog closely. I just found this article from a month ago about political scandal/gossip on the web which might be of interest even if the course is winding down: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/03/13/AR2008031304354.html?nav=rss_technology . The speed of dissemination for news is increasingly too fast for politicians to respond and the archival and searchable nature makes escaping the past more difficult.
Thanks for making the course open so I could follow the fascinating discussions this semester.
