New Tech & Post Modernism - It Begins!


It is about now that I start to flap, because everything else I need to do is comparatively straight forward. I have attended few lectures because of circumstances aleady discussed, so I have been emailed a LOT of links and PP's to get the gist.  Can't say it fills me with joy, but I have emailed the proposed essay title to the New Tech lecturer. and today is about having a reccy of it all before I start :-/

Joanni



OK Mr Fry - I am dreaming about you again.  Always on a bus too.  Admittedly, this business of not having my own car is getting to me and Jungianists would say that this would represent my lack of motivation.  As a well-known Oxford grad, it is not therefore unusual to have this man as influence in my dream - however, also with Kate Bush's music.  He did a voice over for 50 words For Snow but not Joanni which is the music I heard in my dream last night.

How strange.  Pleasant but strange. For the record, I bear no resemblance to Joan of Ark (the 'Joanni' of Kate's song), nor the celebrities mentioned.
