Notes from today, and reading & blogging homework for Wednesday, September 25

Today we discussed social media and social networking, debated new terms for these ideas, and spent some time considering the limits of Wikipedia and the potential of so-called “Big Data.” The TED Talk by Tim Berners-Lee that wouldn’t load during class appears to be working now, so feel free to view it on your own time. Slides from today are available here.

For Wednesday, please read and view the following:
Center for Social Media, Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Media Literacy Education, sections “code” and “principles” only
Grey, Copyright: Forever Less One Day
Lessig, Laws that Choke Creativity
Faden, A Fair(y) Use Tale

Your blogging assignment is one reading response blog post. Our discussion facilitators are Kimesha, Dimitri, and Steve.
