Danger, Will Robinson, Danger
Has anyone received comments on your proposals or projects from outside GMU? I noticed that I received one on my project proposal. I guess I hadn't thought through the fact that all of our comments are visible to the world. With that in mind, and since some of the sites I've reviewed for my final proposal are run by persons that I need to contact (or have attempted to contact), I might have to temper my critiques. Just something to keep in mind. Also, I have corresponded with one such person, Professor Richard Wright (I mentioned him in my presentation Monday night) and he's published an e-book. One comment from a site that has his book on-line I thought may be of interest as it regards copyright.
This site (http://www.laramie.willshireltd.com/Contents.html) notes:
“Richard A. Wright owns the copyright to West of Laramie, but it may be used in whole or in part without payment. Jenny King owns the photographs and gives permission for their use. We ask only that you let them know if you have used all or any part of the book by emailing them at Wayne State University.”
Just thought you'd be interested!
Darn it, good to know Professor. It was somewhat interesting to think that my proposal found interest outside of our class community. Oh well.

These comments are spam. It's a growing problem in the blogosphere.

As someone who used to live near Detroit, I am very much looking forward to seeing your project! Visit the Chrysler Museum (in person) if you get a chance. It's small, but I finally got there last year...neato, as is the Ford Museum.
Like the "Lost in Space" ref., too

I've received several comments on my previous blogs, both for this class and for Eastern European history. It's creeps me out to have someone to approach me in public (happened last summer) and tell me they've read and enjoyed my work on line...esp. when I thought it was visable to my professor and classmates only!
