On Tuesday, February 19 we will discuss Web 2.0, Web 3.0 participatory media, and big data. Please read the following:

The class field trip to visit the Brooklyn College Library zine collection is scheduled for Sunday, March 3 at 3 p.m.  Please email me before February 28 if you plan to attend.

Remember that on Thursday, February 21 the class will meet in the library’s multimedia screening room to watch the film Rip! A Remix Manifesto. The film is 86 minutes long, so please plan to be on time!
