      As time passes, the word Weblog turns up more and more in the lives of
      internet highway travelers, as more and more hosts of that superhighway
      have that name in their rest stops.

      Now there is a course at college or more to the point prestigious
      university that focuses on the weblog as subject.

      WEBLOGS
      <http://journalism.berkeley.edu/program/courses/weblogs/>

      Weblogs are a new form of online publishing that have rapidly become a
      popular way of getting news and information on particular topics. Some are
      run by journalists, while others operate in competition with journalists.
      In this class students will create a Weblog to explore the subject of
      "intellectual property" - copyright issues, the battle over free music
      downloads and peer-to-peer networks, deep linking to Web sites, etc. News
      sources will be scanned each day for items of interest to the IP
      community, the top stories will be selected, and precise summaries of each
      story will be written, with a unique perspective and voice. The resulting
      Weblog column will be posted to the school's Web site and to an email list
      of interested subscribers. We'll also be bringing in experts in the Bay
      Area on intellectual property and copyright issues to become contributors
      to the Weblog.

      Prerequisites: none
      Class Times: One 2-hour session per week.
      Classroom: Greenhouse/room 209

      Now one can fulfill their course desires regarding this topic of weblogs.


      Sincerely,
