CLMOOC, week 2 - remediation
I've been thinking about what the post for the second week of CLMOOC, whose theme this week is re-mediation. I was thinking of several ideas, all of which require media skills beyond what I have (and what I have time to learn at the moment), so it looked like a busted week for me (even though I am quite comfortable being a peripheral member in this community).
