Homework #4 – Final Reflections

This is the last HW post, discussing the direction of the class and its effect. Was it worth the time? Yes, it was! Who knew that something that seems so easy wound up to be so challenging? Keep reading…

As this Fall semester wraps up, all I can think of is getting up the strength to go and protest somewhere. Two juries not charging police officers who murder is too much. And that leads me into the subject of this video. Once again, the American public is about to be taken if we let our guard down. Net Neutrality is a subject that’s been tossed around quite a bit, but hopefully, the explanation contained in the related post and the video shows you [in plain English] just what’s at stake, how it affects you and what you can do about it. Please feel free to comment.

This is the best time of year. It’s still warm [well, it should be] and yet we feel a prelude of winter with leaves falling and a crispness in the background. One more thing for this year, 2014, is the saga of Net Neutrality – the attempt by the incumbent telecoms to remove the democracy from our Internet connections. ‘Pay to play’ has never meant more. And in order to continue to bring awareness during this ‘back room’ period for the FCC, I decided to make that the subject of my mid-term assignment. Take a look.

As part of a class assignment this semester, I am adding a section to this site for posts required by my professor. When she said to ‘create a blog on WordPress,’ I almost fainted. Although the intention wasn’t to discuss my online presence, I had no choice. While trying to keep up w/5 sites and building a 6th, one more would’ve been too much. So, since this site discusses matters of social justice on a regular basis [actually, so does 2014: Immediate Change], I decided to post here. Hopefully, it will be informative for you as well.

The 1st assignment, Digital Nation Analysis, looks at the 2010 PBS documentary. This is an edited version of same.
