The idea for having pre-conference and post-conference conversation/collaboration that Jeremy Dean suggests here is exactly the kind of use case I have been looking for. I think that annotation is a learning end in itself, but I also want it have some extrinsic value as well. I don’t want the notes to just sit on a digital shelf gathering electronic dust. That is what most of my annotations are doing. These simple collaborations go a long way toward satisfying me.
Besides, the papers sound interesting
- Research-Interpretation-Play – Jeff Allred, Professor of English, Hunter College/CUNY
- Towards-Dialogical-Student-Publics – Erin Rose Glass, Associate Director of Digital Arts & Humanities Initiatives at the Institute of Arts & Humanities at the University of San Diego, California
- Exploiting-the-Network – Larry Hanley, Professor of English, San Francisco State University
I repeat: the idea of annotating before a conference AND THEN using those annotations to bring an alt conversation to that conference is exactly the ‘next level’ I have been hoping for from Hypothes.is. Annotations need to be used! They have instrumental value beyond intrinsic social and personal ones.

where violence thrives.
I point to
“not solutions” like:
My health is fated by where I
My zip code makes me sick.
It is my oppressor.
Will we ever have enough
from these zip code grievances?
Violence is a trillion dollar toll road.
