Discussing Little Brother with Cory Doctorow: Take Two

Anne Smith and Maura Moritz's students will once again be discussing Little Brother with author and blogger Cory Doctorow. A different set of students had this opportunity two years ago and it was a great experience (see that post for more details on the bigger picture of the unit), so we're really looking forward to this.

If you're available at 8:30 am Mountain Time on Tuesday, January 31st, feel free to join us in the live stream or the live blog. Mr. Doctorow will be responding to our students' questions live via Skype from London (the stream will be a not-so-great quality webcam-based ustream, but you should at least be able to get an idea what it looks like and hear fairly well), and the live blog is a place for our students to backchannel while the Skype session is occurring. If you do join us in the live blog, we simply ask that you use your real name and make constructive contributions to the conversation.

Update 1-31-12
Here are a few pictures from today and the embedded ustream archive.

  1. Hey Karl, I have to agree and say the design does look good. The only thing that I can suggest is that if you were thinking of a small kitchen, you may want to check into Frigidaire appliances. They offer a microwave/wall oven combo that can save a good amount of space. I have about 5 years experience in appliances, and have worked on all kinds if you have any further questions.
