Paul Levinson’s book “New New Media” is a pleasure to read, as it takes you through the new media technology and gives you an insight to its functions, and explains the process of blogging, and social networking. Just like Jessica’s comment in class, I did not realize this (Cyberspace)blogging had been out there for some time now. Levinson referred to “Lost “the TV series that is now in its final season. I too am a fan of the show; I had no idea that there is a following on cyberspace, including private bloggers and social networking sites dedicated to the show, inclusive of giving you clues on the next episode. I must be stuck in the old culture of waiting around the water cooler waiting for the “Lost” fans to gather the day after the show’s episode for “face to face” communication,about the highlights of the show, with my coworkers. Just call me a realist.
