Please respond to the following questions in a comment on this post. Length is not as important as THOUGHTFULNESS. This week’s questions are pretty easy – mostly just asking you to reflect on what you have read or heard thus far.
1)Describe, briefly, one key takeaway you got from the Tow Center report on Post Industrial Journalism. What did you find most interesting or most important? Yes, you can skim over the report. Be sure you are not just repeating one of your classmate’s takeaways (incentive to post early). Hint: Here’s a list of my own takeaways, if that gives you any ideas. Be specific.
2)This is a review question, so if were paying attention in class, it should be pretty easy. Of course, you can use the readings too. Name one way in which media has been disrupted by technology…e.g. how did Google disrupt the New York Times? How did Apple disrupt the music industry? Be specific.
3)After watching Page One, describe one way in which The New York Times has faced either negative consequences OR opportunity from disruption.
