Hey Shakespeare people!

I'm thrilled to see everyone in here. An idea - and this is something I've been telling folks in all groups - if your talking about a specific issue - like below (Web 2.0 and Shakespeare/Making the Tempest POP) it might be more effective to put them in the Discussion Forum above instead of here on the Comment Wall. That way when you create a thread of ideas around a topic that is easily searchable when people come and join the group at a later date. The Comment Wall (here) doesn't really sort by topic or thread. Discussion Forum postings allow for a clear archive on your topic. If you're interested in a thread, but didn't start it you can CHOOSE to follow them. In this photo here...

See the the little option in the lower right hand corner? That lets you follow threads you didn't start - you get an e-mail update everytime someone adds to the discussion.

If you were interested in MacBeth but didn't sign up to get updates you will have missed all the MacBeth resources posted in the discussion forum above. Check them out as you might find them to be useful!

Great to have everyone here!!!

Here's a possible project integrating Web 2.0 into a study of Shakespeare. What would Shakespeare's Facebook page look like if he was friends with everyone in his plays? Check out what the cast of Hamlet is up to: http://tinyurl.com/cvuf76
