This class has taught me many things. It has taught me that I want to be more private, and while I think I can never escape media, I will try to lessen it’s influence on me. This class has taught me so much that I can’t possibly describe it to another person. It has inception like qualities where I realize that media is spinning top that never stops, however I like for my top to fall over and the class ends up driving me insane when I start to think about all the surveillance and exactly how the companies are monitoring us.
However I do love the Media we get to see and I would really say this class is more of a philosophical class in making everyone truly think about their media and how it affects our lives and making us aware of what media really is and how we label media and the public sharing of our information. No matter what Media will be in my life but I am determined for the only media to be seen about me is what I allow and thanks to this class I feel more aware and more prepared for dealing with media and now I truly understand that while this class has taught me much I still have more to learn and to know. My take away is that while I will never truly know how the internet works and how to find some information. I know that the answers are out there and that through investigation and understanding of how the internet grows I can make it in this media world and stay private like what I want.
