The thing about a class like this is there is always something coming up in the news and wherever else that’s relevant or interesting (at least to me) to what we’re doing in this class. I will post about these occasionally in the category of “For What It’s Worth.” I’m not necessarily expecting you to read and comment on these things (though of course you can), but like I said, they’re interesting.
So here’s an example, “What it feels like to be the last generation to remember life before the internet” is a little article/quasi-promo/review piece about a new book out by someone named Michael Harris that is very much pondering the generations (those of use born before 1985 apparently) who knew life before the Internet. I thought it very much fit in with what we’ve been talking about so I’m sharing. FWIW.
