HW: A) Read pp. 39-42 and 45-8 in articles packet.
B) Afterwards, look back over all the articles we’ve read. Decide which article to quote and respond to for your Essay 1 (draft due next Wed). Post a quotation & response from that article.
C) Post your description of using an app, imitating the way Sherry Turkle describes “Tinder” (notes on this exercise re-posted below).
Look at Turkle’s detailed description of how the app “Tinder” is used on p. 27. Using a similar level of detail, write a description of an app that you use regularly and/or have had significant experiences on. How does the app work? How does it affect the way you connect (or don’t connect) with other people? How does it affect how you think and feel?
