class blog assignment #2
This week, pay particular attention to the mail you receive. Scan an item, but keep in mind that you're putting this material in a public space. If you don't want your home address broadcasted to the World Wide Web, mark it out first. Or post the back of something. Or the front of a postcard. What's interesting about this is that we don't receive a lot of interesting mail anymore. But think about the relationship between junk mail and spam. Once you start paying attention, you'll probably find something.
