A Feast of Web Tools, Web Science and Discussions

Click on the title of this post or the Webwhompers link below and browse the Share menu item and the Blog. For sure I will return to read more and you may, too!

Boston University Teacher Bruce Hoppe writes at connectedness

"I have just unveiled Webwhompers, which bears the fruit of four years of my teaching Web science at Boston University. The site features a few interests of mine:
  • A solid layman's introduction to Web science, focusing on the intersection of mathematics, sociology, and the Web as it is used and built by regular people. It is all presented as an online textbook you can read here.
  • A case study in educational methodology. Unlike the online textbook, which is meant to be read, the rest of Webwhompers is meant to be experienced."
