This Week’s Assignment

For Tuesday’s class read the following:

How my media diet is killing me.

And use it to answer the following question (based on what you learn about this guy)

“What would you leave out – and why?” Do a better job than he does explaining his media diet.

  • Write down what you encounter
  • When you encounter it
  • Are you a lurker?
  • If you participate, what do you say or post?
  • Why do you say or post what you do?
  • What do you watch? Why do you watch it?


The narrative part of this should be no less than 500 words – you will write more than that because you will be making lists of what you are encountering – but the list is not enough. Your question should always be WHY.
