It’s not sure what this portends for next week, these headless courses appearing. Keep your eye and web browser open to http://ds106.us/category/the-site/fall-2013-headless/ where on Monday, at one minute past midnight, the first week’s worth of content will appear for the Headless ds106 Course.

The person not teaching this class, a.k.a. I. Crane, has texted us to remind you that this course is not going to provide a detailed list of instructions each week that you need to dutifully follow. Crane will make no vide lectures, nor will appear in twitter, nor will issue grades. See how useless a headless teacher can be?

The first two weeks is settle in and get acquainted time, with bits to ponder the foundations of ds106 — creating and owning your person digital space, and getting yourself into the ds106 blogging habit.

not that we can penalize you with grades or drop you from class, but being a #4life ds106er means more than just making a GIF or an image and slapping it up on twitter or Google+ — use your digital space to write about what you create, your process (both conceptual and technological). And try and spend time giving feedback and acknowledgement to others.

Mama said I’d lose my head
If it wasn’t fastened on.
Today I guess it wasn’t
‘Cause while playing with my cousin
It fell off and rolled away
And now its gone.

And I can’t look for it
‘Cause my eyes are in it,
And I can’t call to it
‘Cause my mouth is on it
(Couldn’t hear me anyway
‘Cause my ears are on it),
Can’t even think about it
‘Cause my brain is in it.
So I guess I’ll sit down
On this rock
And rest for just a minute”¦

An early 90s builder of the web and blogging Alan Levine barks at CogDogBlog.com on web storytelling (#ds106 #4life), photography, bending WordPress, and serendipity in the infinite internet river. He thinks it's weird to write about himself in the third person.
