Welcome to Conscientious Reflections

Welcome to Conscientious Reflections – a blog that aims to focus on what it means to live, work, and think in the always expanding digital space of the Internet. Various forms of digital media will be considered here, as well as how our interactions with digital media may be seen as altering the ways in which we see and understand the world and ourselves. I will update the blog regularly (at least one new post per week – hopefully more!), and I am looking forward to any responses that readers may have to the entries that I post here. I will begin by bringing over a couple of blog posts that I began previously, but have since reworked in different ways. Stay tuned for further information and new posts!

About paulmpb82

I live in Bucks County, PA, with my lovely wife, while working as an Assistant Director in the Writing Program and Course Coordinator of Multimedia Composition Program in the English Department at Rutgers University. I also manage the Plangere Culture Lab, a space where students and faculty at Rutgers can explore what it means to think and compose with digital technologies in critical and meaningful ways. I am an avid reader and researcher of a wide variety of topic areas. I am fascinated by the way that abstract ideas can collide with things in the real world, providing us with instances when we can stop and reflect on them. We can find examples of these occurrences all the time in films, paintings, architecture, technology, and so many other things.

    Dear Paul,

    Sorry we couldn’t arrange to meet last week, mid semester exams and the threat of a strike pretty much guaranteed that our attention was directed elsewhere. I am delighted to read your thoughts on this blog and would love to discuss this and many of the other adventures you must be having.

    Let’s see when we might have a chance to chat in the next week or so. We are both much too busy, and have a lot of catching up to do. So call me when you think another window of opportunity might open up.

    Your blog is most excellent, thoughtful and inviting. Be happy to visit it periodically and leave a few comments on the issues you raise. Stay healthy.

    Ralph
