Week 10 – Helen De Michiel – Combinatorial Thinking

I began this quarter with a post about combinatorial storytelling. I’ll complete it with a post about combinatorial thinking. I feel that together we have engaged in an amazingly rich exchange among twenty-four highly creative and insightful authors and thinkers.

I have been so impressed at the way each of you – through your own […]

Week 10–Allyson Woodard

A message from Spreadable Media that I remember finding particularly compelling was the authors’ assertion that phenomena like music piracy are not new, but simply made more visible due to digital media. I think this is true of many things, and contributes to the discomfort many people feel over social media–human interactions which once were […]

Week #10 – Ethics – Lauren Marie Paterson

As media creators in both the journalism and communication fields, ethics will always be an integral part of our work, especially if we are putting it out into the public eye. Through this course and the study of the changing digital landscape I had a few thoughts on the subject.

Week 10: Emily Priebe

One of the ethical issues that seems to pop up frequently in a wide range of media projects is the disclosure of information. Sometimes seemingly unrelated transmedia projects have ties to brands. Those relationships can potentially affect how viewers interpret the content. The example from Spreadable Media with the young woman who was looking for […]
