November 2012 selection:
Rheingold, Howard (2012). Net Smart: How to thrive online. Cambridge, MA: MIT Press.
The future of digital culture—yours, mine, and ours—depends on how well we learn to use the media that have infiltrated, amplified, distracted, enriched, and complicated our lives. I’ve been asking myself and others how to use social media intelligently, humanely, and above all mindfully. This book is about what I’ve learned.
All faculty, staff, and students are welcome to join us. If you are interested in participating, please submit this form.
The discussion will take place Monday, December 3, at 1:00 pm (room TBA). You are responsible to purchase the book on your own. Food will be provided at the discussion!
