Blogroll Mash-Up

To the right of this post, you will see a "blogroll" with a list of links for the websites that I regularly peruse on the topics of rhetoric, technology, education, politics, marketing, design, and cyberculture. There are many professional associations represented there, but there are also a lot of personal blogs from people without any official sponsorship who have related interests and write well enough to make it worth the visit. This morning I felt particularly aware that worlds collide when I read more about the Big Donor Show on Dutch television, the subject of a public outcry because the creators of the reality show Big Brother were apparently featuring three desperately ill contestants vying for the kidney of a terminally ill women. Of course, today the media was reporting it as a hoax, designed to draw attention to the shortage of donors. This was a story covered by both The Museum of Hoaxes that draws attention to Internet gullibility and my European cyber-pal over at Houtlust who covers the international social marketing beat. It's actually not the first time that social marketing has exploited new media credulity, and I don't think it will be the last.

Readers can also see that I've added a list of topics to please the big fans of metadata among us.
