    1. It encouraged me to be a little more lighthearted with my annotations and even to link some non-relevant images, but fun nonetheless in the margins.

      That's really nice to learn - how playful language and approaches to writing inspires subsequent annotation.

    1. (con)texts

      My thanks to Jeremy Dean who provided wonderful feedback on some of my earlier writing about play and annotation. He suggested this distinction - (con)text - and this is my first attempt to take that idea and run with it a bit...

    2. “2:45 – 4chan, it’s like the bottoms of the internet. Completely anonymous, a lot of hated. I don’t recommend every [sic] visiting the website unless you have a deep, unsatisfied curiosity; and then [be] prepared to be disappointed in the human race.”

      ...Going to go fix my spelling mistakes now...

    3. As we continue to play, and as we continue to playfully approach our annotation in the open, I am eager to name the many ways in which learners creatively engage amongst text, context, and (con)text.

      Keep moving forward, reflecting as we go ... and learning the barriers and the open space, and finding the way between them.

    4. sarcasm

      Interesting ... and so cultural, too. We bring our language bias when we use sarcasm.

    5. a playful attitude – and whether expressed individually or shared socially – can appropriate a street, the city plaza, a building facade or foyer, a store, or an office as a playground.

      Unless you are the cops ... then "playful" skirts into "unlawful." Maybe. Continuing this line of thought is one that Terry brought up in some earlier annotation at some other post -- we have no control over who annotates our post with Hypothesis, right? Anyone could come here and add racist, derogatory media and comments in the margins -- maybe even under the banner of "play" -- and the post's owner has no recourse? Just wondering and pushing thinking about annotation etiquette in the realm of play and appropriation ... hmmm ..

    1. something like this:

      I want this tool to also be able to annotate the image. So instead, here is my image response.

    2. Playful Annotation in the Open

      Does Remi know we are here? Bets on how long till he responds?

    3. What are the playful qualities of learners’ open and socially networked annotation?

      I am reminded of my favorite Brit philosopher here: A.N. Whitehead who insisted that we needed romance before precision, we need play before pragmatism. When I began teaching Hypothes.is this semester my emphasis was first on homago, especially the messing about part of that. Now I am moving toward being more precise about its affordances, for example, in writing summaries. But even when we are being instrumental and pragmatic with the tool we can still have a playful attitude. If there is no joy and play in using the tool, then why bother. We won't continue to use it, will we.

      BTW, we really need a copy to clipboard function here that nicely gathers in all these annotations much like Diigo has. Just saying.
