What do we know about how we consume media now?

What has your social media diet done to you?

And think about what it means from a business POV

So what does all this social media and entrainment mean?

Look at this great comic from

Huxley vs. Orwell: The Webcomic

And why Stewart wrote the comic. 

Are you who you portray yourself to be and what does that mean? What does it mean to be authentic?

Postman was not the first person to look at technology and your world:

Carr on a TV show

Carr at the Harvard bookstore

Watch this Frontline show about being distracted. It will give you lots of fodder for your paper.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • How do you use social media and other entertainment media?
  • Where do you use it most often?
  • Who do you communicate with the most?
  • What do you communicate about?
  • What do you get out of your use of social media?

I want you to write, create links, make a short video, have audio and photos to create a story about your media use based on your last assignment, the material provided above and the questions I have for you here. This will be due in class next Thursday.
