Pre-semester e-mail #1 -- If you have not read this message yet, stop everything and read it now.

MED130 is roughly arranged into three units covering:

1. History of the Internet
2. History of Blogging and Social Media
3. The concept of the Networked Self

Further, we will use this central question as a focus for discussing the class content within the units: What are the elements and characteristics of viral content, and how can we make content "go viral" on purpose?

Answer that question and your future as a media professional is likely to be stellar.

See Group Assignment #3 during Week 12 (linked on the sidebar) for the viral video assignment. You may wish to begin thinking about this assignment now.
