Reading Response #8 – MacMillan and Webb

Last Tuesday you heard from social media journalist and co-founder of Gun Violence Project, Jim MacMillan.  What’s your main take away from MacMillan’s talk as it relates to the future of journalism – perhaps even your career future?

This week you read about Amy Webb’s account of her 2006 digital diet where she stayed away from “traditional forms of media.”  Things have changed so much in just 7 years.  Put yourself on an imaginary diet where you turn off all your technology and have to rely on “traditional forms of media.”   What do you observe?  Are you informed?  Can you do it for a sustained period of time?

Don’t forget to post your responses by the Tuesday 10/29 @11:59p deadline.
