Standing on Ceremony

Five double cappuccinos and eight hours later…

One of my much needed papers is done. And it’s here, too, if you’re interested.

Standing on Ceremony is 2,000 words or so on the subject of Aristotle’s “classes of rhetoric” as applied to the Internet environment. Some of it will be a bit basic for the typical web reader, and a bit deep in classical rhetoric, however through the miracles of hypertext all the key rhetorical terms are hyperlinked to explanatory references. The web-conversation specific stuff is also linked for the benefit of my professor, who would not be familiar with ongoing blog conversations. I think it worked out pretty well.

Of course, comments, suggestions, and/or bricks and tomatoes are welcome.
