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?
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.
