I encourage you all to read the Eland article that I intended to assign for today, and blog about it if you choose. It has a good resource list of alternative media websites. Slides from today’s class are available here.
On Monday we’ll be discussing non-text digital media: images, video, audio, and multimedia. Please read Malitz’s article “Radiohead’s ‘Rainbows’: Is Free Release A Potential Pot of Gold?” and Elton’s article “Love for Labels.” If you read the Elton article from off campus, be prepared to log into LexisNexis with the library barcode number from your City Tech ID (off-campus access instructions available here). Also read pages 79-84 in the Pavlik book, Media in the digital age. The book is on reserve in the library under the call number HM851 .P38 2008.
Your assignment is to write one reading response blog post on any of the readings for Monday and comment on at least one reading response blog post.
