Class, Mon, 4/10

Ronson, boyd, Carr

Read the four scripted exchanges between Ronson, boyd, and Carr produced in class on Friday.  Pick one that you were not involved in composing, and jot down some notes in response. Let’s use these scripts as a way of thinking about what these three writers agree on and where they differ.

Having read It’s Complicated, in what ways does boyd’s”Google and Facebook Can’t Just Make Fake News Disappear” struck as you as running true to form? What surprises are there?
