Online privacy - Hermida
Back in January, I wondered aloud about whether our standards of online privacy were changing -- noting an emerging meme that even if I post something online, if it was not intended for your eyes, it should be private.
Alfred Hermida of the University of British Columbia has an excellent summary of the current state of affairs, "How social media blurs the line between public and private," that he presented at the annual AEJMC convention in Chicago a couple of weeks ago.
I highly recommend you read it. This is likely to be an increasing topic of discussion as our lives become more and more like "The Truman Show."
(I admit to being behind on writing a few things about AEJMC as well. Stay tuned. Syllabuses come first, however, as we get ready for semester start.)
