Remixing "A Story Before Bed"
When I found out that a spam blog called "literacyintheclassroom.com" was republishing the entire content of my blog, and several other blogs, I first posted a screenshot of how my material appeared on the other site, and then a screenshot of how my screenshot had appeared on the other site. That site was also serving up an ad for "A Story Before Bed," a service that lets users with a webcam record a video of themselves reading a kind-friendly story.
Anyone interested in teaching about remix culture might be interested in creating an assignment like this. I used the spam blogger's scraper against him, and used the media service he was advertising in order to communicate my displeasure. See: "Scrape, Scrape, Spam Blog, Have You Scraped My Site?" -- Dennis Jerz
This story has a happy ending -- the other guy immediately took down my material, and soon after shut down the whole site; the next day he posted an apology. So this whole activity serves another important purpose -- it shows a textbook example of what you SHOULD do if you find one of your missteps has created buzz: limit the damage by admitting your mistake rather than trying to silence or ignore the complaints.
