Make-Up Blog (Week of March 31 - April 3)

Part of an e-mail to Ramesh after his Skype visit to class:
In "Indigenous, Ethnic, and Cultural Articulations of New Media" and other articles, your new media models and interventions seem to attempt to form bridges across disconnected reservations. Have there been any physical effects as a result of these information systems? Have you seen any movement or migration of people between these reservations, and can any of it be attributed to (or simply compared with) the (electronic) structure of the networks you've implemented? Also, do you see any possibilities for your ideas to apply to small, marginalized, nondiasporic communities who have common ties apart from race and ethnicity?
