I'm thinking about creating a course on multiplatform communicating, or the 
rhetoric of the interface. The goal would be to help students understand how the 
way you engage with the media technology impacts your understanding of the 
information being communicated, and what it says about who the intended users 
are. The idea would be for them to develop multiplatform communication projects, 
so understanding the role of the interface in content creation and 
dissemination. So it could draw in literature from various fields: psychology of 
perception, film studies, HCI, social informatics, etc. If anyone has any ideas 
for good literature, then I would be glad to hear it.
