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.
