Yesterday I shared emails from students who, in defending the Fletcher Social List, helped to define it.  Today I want to give you examples of things I learned from the Social List.

Example #1:  A student is writing the story of his spring in Egypt.

Dear Fletcher,
As some of you know, I was studying in Egypt during the recent revolution.  I happened to be traveling with a friend of mine who works as a cartoonist, when the events in Tahrir Square began, and we decided to tell the story of our experience through a webcomic.  The first episode of the comic was released today, and it will be updated weekly.  I hope you enjoy it and feel free to comment on the site.
Missing Fletcher,
Asher

Example #2:  There are lots of Bollywood fans in the community!  And they put together a list to guide my summer video watching.  Are you also new to Bollywood?  Check out the list.

The Best Bollywood Films According to Fletcher Students (and Their Roommates)
Aashiqui

Aishwariya
Amar Akhbar Anthony

Baazigar
Beta
Betaab
Bluffmaster!
Bunty Aur Babli

And that’s only the As and Bs!  Time constraints keep me from sharing the entire list.

Example #3:  Even though MALD student Bilal Baloch works in our office, I needed the Social List to tell me he was featured on CNN.

Example #4:  Days before I heard officially, the Social List told me that you can check bicycles out at the library — just like books!

Example #5:  For better or worse, I learned howmany…remixes there are of that ubiquitous and (some might say) annoying Friday song.  (Sorry about the hulu commercial — the blog likes to draw from legal sites.)

As you can see, time spent reading Social List (or Socialist) messages is time well spent.  The List is like a web that holds the community together, while also informing us about its interests and activities.  Incoming students:  Be ready to share with and learn from the List!
