I haven't gotten much further with my assignments. While you are waiting for some actual content, here's something to entertain you:

Thing 4: Social Networks

I'm so behind! I had thought I could do most of my 26.2 tasks from the library, but there isn't the time.

So -- social networks. Well, I read the posts on the Boston Board of Chowhound regularly. Chowhound www.chow.com , as you might suspect, is a community of people interested in food, cooking and restaurants. I sometimes search for opinions on different restaurants and, before a recent weekend in New York, I searched the Manhattan Board to decide where I would be eating.

I also regularly read Language Log http://languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu/nll/ and Languagehat http://www.languagehat.com/. I suppose these are both really blogs. (I'm a little confused about the definitional boundaries of these net iterations.)

And from time to time, I think about joining last.fm http://www.last.fm/, a community of esoteric pop music lovers.

But while I use these sites for information, I have not contributed to, nor even registered for, them.
