All quiet on the Midwestern Front

It’s a little quiet around here these days so I thought I would post an excerpt from my chapter, “Active Citizenship in a Digital World“.

In this segment of my chapter, I discuss an article entitled “Small Change: Why the revolution will not be Tweeted” written by the great Malcolm Gladwell and why I think he is completely on the wrong side of history on the issue.

I know we are all extremely busy with the paper, mid-terms, etc. so I want you to know how awesome you would be if you managed to make time to read a small part and make a comment or two!

Cheers!

My latest thoughts on democracy, social media and you having a voice. Plus the remixer’s manifesto – how our current laws regarding copyright may not be good for anyone. . .Hollywood and the recording industry included.
