Volumizer Resurrection One


The Volumizer is Glenn Rikowski’s AOL blog. This was started up on 29th September 2005. On 30th September 2008, AOL announced that all of its Hometown products, including its blogs and newsletters, would be closed down on 31st October 2008. Glenn’s articles, many of which were written for his students in Education Studies in the School of Education at the University of Northampton (especially the EDU3004 module, ‘Education, Culture & Society’), will be preserved at The Flow of Ideas. Work has begun on this project, and the first five articles are now available, as listed below:
