Google Hoaxes

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

Hi all. I hope you had a great weekend. Here is a link to the Wikipedia page that details Google’s various hoaxes over the years. Some of these turned into real news events and so can be instructive for us. See you tomorrow.

Welcome to the class blog. You need to join the blog by registering (see the link in the lower right column). Once you’ve registered, you’ll be able to log in and once you are logged in you will land on a “dashboard” screen. One of your options on that screen is “write”. Select that and you can then write a post. Before it will become public, you need to click the “publish” button on the right of the screen.

Below the text box there are options for categories. I’ll be showing you what to do with those in class.
