You've Got Mail Reaction

Let's make this simple. I'd you to post in the comments section of THIS post, one thing that you feel this movie illustrates about CMC as we have discussed it so far this semester. It doesn't have to be long...a four or five sentence paragraph is fine.

Please post by 11:59 PM on Sunday, September 21st.

Buffy, the Internet and CMC

Today in class, we watched an episode from the first season of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Based on your observations of this episode, I want you to write a 350 to 400 word response to what we watched. Look beyond this as just mere escapist entertainment. Imagine that the writer and producer of this episode has a message they wanted to convey about the Internet. Imagine that they wrote this as a warning to us about what role the Internet is playing in our lives and what role it will play in the future. Also, what could they be saying about computer mediated communication.

Write your response and post that response to your blog. If you haven't set it up yet, then you should do that now.

Pay attention to the formatting of your post. It should not be one long block of text. There should be paragraphs and these paragraphs should be separated by a double space. All you need to do is look at how this post is formatted.

Please have your response posted to your blog by 11:59, Sunday, September 7th.
