New forms of conversation are emerging across the web that are shaping the nature of our institutional responsibilities. Remix culture is impacting the future of discourse on levels that make many of us uncomfortable. Let's explore the notion of the "conversation" as it exists across the social web to see how we, as educators, can take cues from this emerging dialogue. It is our responsibility not to dismiss these discussion forms (and forums) as passing fads, but to realize the embedded pedagogies that exist within these emergent spaces-pedagogies we must understand to fully imagine what the future of digital media means to scholarship.
