Hi there. My name is Gord. You’ll soon get to know me well through the experiences and thoughts–both professional and personal–that I will share through this blog. This isn’t my first blog, but since I’ve started on a new career path in recent years…
We’ve been discussing in one of my classes the subject of virality. What makes things go viral? Specifically we got into discussing memes and some examples of what events or images have been turned into memes and circulated around the various social pools of the internet.
In one of my classes we’re leading up to a major project based around the idea of Open Government in Canada. Part of this project will involve the development of an Infographic that I must create to support the other elements that I will need to formulate the content for my project. To prepare myself for this, I’m going to see for myself what the big deal is about infographics.
No, this is not some Australian Star Wars fan thing. I’ve been tasked with a mission to consider styles of blogs and pick one that I think is great and use my wordsmith magic and write about it.
