For CLASS FOUR — 2/13/15

In Uncategorized on February 8, 2015 at 8:29 am

A few questions to keep in mind as you prepare for our next class:

  • Levinson asserts that while TV provides ‘immediacy’, YouTube is the ‘medium of record’.  Put that argument into your own words – and discuss if it’s a valid one.
  • Later, when talking about the potential for online mischief, Levinson says “YouTube contributes a lot more to the public good than to its undermining”.   Do you agree?  Why or why not?
  • Levinson also calls Twitter “something we ‘wear’ or send out to the world…to indicate our emotional disposition”.  What does this mean — and do you agree with his assessment?

Also — don’t forget…  Your papers based on your first Mini-Task are due before the start of class Friday.
