Smaller Potatoes

As we read and discuss the chapter on Levinson's "Smaller Potoatoes" chapter, it might be a good idea to take notes and post them to your blog as we go.  Let's try that as a way of note-taking that might help retain the material in the chapter.

So, try answering the questions below, even if you've already answered them previously somewhere else, as in a blog post.

  • What's your experience with Myspace?  
  • Any "cyberbullying" stories that you are aware of?
  • What's your take on the Lori Drew/Megan Meier story?  Especially the result?
  • Levinson notes that the Truth on Earth band provided some "medicine" for cyberbullying.  What's your take on that?
  • Are you aware of any stories about musical successes on Myspace?  Check to see whether some of your favorite bands have Myspace accounts.  Choose one and check some other sites for their presence there.
  • Describe your use of Digg.
  • Reddit?
  • How much social media contact did you have with the elections of 2012?  
Finally, have you used Second Life?  Podcasting?
