Week 6 – Wednesday

Agenda:

  • Remaining Discussion Leaders (present to full class)
  • Social media & news/information
  • Extra-Credit opportunity (added to syllabus)
  • Lab – essay 2 work

Discussion Leaders: Anna & Nick

Social Media & News/Information:

Today’s In-Lab Assignment:

  • Review the GNU Public Documentation License at Wikipedia and the Creative Commons initiative and licensing options.
  • Think about the technologies (eg, wiki and blogging software; the infrastructure — which began with the telegraph — that facilitates geographically-disbursed, collaborative work) that underpin these evolving forms of communication.
  • Create a blog post where you reflect on the interplay between technology and society … as well as make some forecasts about how these technological and social forces might re-shape “the news.” It doesn’t need to be very long, merely thoughtful. Categorize it as “assignment.”
