Performance
What about performance objects in AS 2 or 3? What defines or helps to define performance? Would this involve an seemingly intelligent animal or agent, dancing lights, or elements of behavior that appear rational or emotional? A weblog can be an adaptive or reactive space and we can still have the dog chase things and pant in MS Word (but this is non-adaptive). Is it enough to throw an object against Stage.width?

Performance
Spazeboy threatens to weblog during the next New Media course, which I guess would be a variant on backchanneling or perhaps a form or learning performance. Go for it, dude, we encourage that sort of thing in the course. I wonder, however, if this might form added benefit for other students who would read responses or additions afterwards, or if such practice could feed back into a new media weblog or wiki via rss. Something to think about.

Blending
On another note, Susan Gibb is going to have to start getting us up on Blender, which will be a must show for many of the students currently in new media.
