Did anyone else enjoy Rebecca Woolf?

I don't know about anyone else, but I really enjoyed listening to Rebecca Woolf in class today. She was so interesting and friendly, and I really enjoyed listening to her opinion of virtual communities. I think one of the reasons she was so enjoyable, at least for me, was because she was much younger than usual guest speakers in classes. She's relatively close to our age, therefore it was easier for her to relate to the audience. Lots of times when I listen to guest speakers who are at least a decade older, the lecture tends to seem more formal and stiff. But Rebecca seemed very friendly and informal. (Plus not to mention that what she does on starbrightworld.com is very admirable.)

Did anyone else enjoy Rebecca Woolf today? Just curious. :)

I really enjoyed listening to her too! She was so cool and she really made me think about blogging to connect with people who you wouldn't be able to connect to in person... And she was funny! Great speaker Marissa!

Oh yeah, she was hilarious--a really interesting person to have as a guest speaker. I have to say, all and all the speakers have been great and it is a great way to get some variety in the class.

I thought she was awesome! She was hilarious and I think she really solidified some of the concepts we've been covering in class about virtual communities and connecting the online to the in-person (or seperating the two)

Great speakers Marissa!!!

I'm so glad you enjoyed rebecca's lecture. I thought she was great too and I'll let her know how you guys liked it. and I'll try to find some more younger speakers - I dont think lockhart has hit 30 yet.

I loved her personality; very honest and straight forward, no B.S. I also agree with Nicole in saying that Rebecca is very admirable for her work with the star bright online community. In fact I am extremelty interested in following in her foot steps in that community. Great job Marissa, the speakers really make the course unique!
