At the beginning of the semester when I saw the ‘5 Secrets of Media Life’ on the screen I found it hard to believe that over the course of a semester someone would be able to sway my opinion so that I would strongly believe in all of them. Before this class I, like the majority of people today, are oblivious to the unique and somewhat uncanny connection we have with media. Think about it! We sleep with our cell phones, laptops, and other media devices. We feel more comfortable and connected just knowing our cell phone is there and we feel strange and alone when it’s not. After someone gets back from a vacation in which they couldn’t check their Facebook the first thing they do is check how many notifications they have. Our interdependence on media is to a point where we cannot escape it. But then again why should we? Everyday new technologies are coming out to make our lives more simple and more productive which is always really great. Don’t get me wrong I do think there is a point which we should not cross but I don’t see us getting to that bridge for quite a while. The point is that ‘we are everywhere’, ‘we are together alone’, ‘we can see everyone and everything’, ‘we are on the move’, and most importantly ‘we are media’. In all honesty I don’t believe most people could live without media these days. We rely on it so much that it is us and we are it and that is always going to be the case from this point on. What it comes down to is the point and name of this class, Media Life. Media is life. It is living, breathing, changing, and it is us.
