At the moment some of us are attempting to finish an article about the collaborative autoethnography we’ve been working on since the second week of #rhizo14 (the first rMOOC?). One thing we’re attempting to characterise is the way that we zigzagged between different platforms (such as Twitter, Facebook, blogs and all the more creative platforms that the more talented also used), moving in a messy, rhizomatic way, having different conversations with different parts of the swarm as we went along – and sometimes drawing others not part of #rhizo14 into our conversations as they saw our tweets, blog posts and everything we produced. As I was wondering if any of us had blogged about it previously, and was also searching our Facebook group for something else, I came across this description from Scott of our collective:
A herd of freely associating, autonomous cats.
We don’t usually quote publicly what we say on Facebook, but that is a lovely way of describing us.
