[Class project - YouTube Video] ASU Complaint Choir 2009

ShareTweet

Last semester, my JUS394 CyberPolitics class completed the semester with a class project — the Complaint Choir. They worked for two weeks; gathering complaints from public (online and offline) and turning them into lyrics as well as organizing everything (logistics, publication, etc) around the public performance. The choir itself, was not a choir. We rehearsed only once!
On May 1st, 2009, the class of JUS394 CyberPolitics did it. The students sung the complaint song of the year, at around 12:30pm at Student Service Lawn, with guitar and drum (thanks to Dr …

Do you think living in Phoenix Metropolitan is perfect? Hell no…. Don’t you have many complaints about your life? Do you feel like to complain?
Why not cry out rather than swallow what worries us Phoenix Metropolitan-dwellers? Why not contribute your frustration with professors, students, administrators, legislators, traffic jam, taxes etc. towards a powerful and pleasurable public complaint?

During my Australian visit last semester, I did several interviews. One of them is apparently available online.
LL: I’ve had the opportunity to listen to you present at several different venues during your stay in Australia so it’s wonderful to have the opportunity to follow-up with you on some of the issues you’ve raised. Let’s start though at the very beginning – how did you get interested in studying the Internet in Indonesia?
ML: There were four major occasions that led me to do what I am doing now. First, I had …

Yesterday was the last day of class of the Spring semester. So, it was the last day seeing my JUS394 students.
It was a big relief to finally get to the end of semester. I still surely have a lot of work to do. Grading tons of papers is coming soon. But at least, no more teaching next week and weeks following next week. No more waking up in the morning and cycling to campus barely waking up!

As some of you might have known, several months ago I did a Call for Paper for setting up a panel at International Convention of Asian Scholars in August 2007 in Kuala Lumpur. I got a tremendous reaction. Many great abstracts were submitted, not only from junior scholars but also some senior ones! Many of them didn't even ask for funding, they would be self-funded. I wish I could accept all of them. Unfortunately I couldn't.

Here is a course I’ll teach in Spring 2007 semester.  This is my first course at ASU and actually my first very own course in my life. I’ve been teaching for so many years, but never really “owned” a course before.
All — bloggers and non bloggers, nice persons and not-so nice ones, human and aliens, and others –  is welcome to join the class.
