I think all Professor Deuze is raising awareness in our media usage. After taking this class I’m starting to think about things that I probably knew unconsciously but never truly took notice of. The panopticon, google watching our searches, fb owning the stuff we upload, wikiality, zombie effect, etc. somehow in the back of I mind I knew these things existed but never understood the magnitude of some of these phenomenon. I don’t think Professor Deuze is asking us to argue or pick a side but simply be alert. He has introduced us to many perspectives of media life (the Amish, media cities, scholar’s POVs) and it’s kind of up to us to decide how much we want to take in and leave out.
