Reflection on Feature Articles

When I first found out that we had to do a feature article that consisted on 6 pages and 1500 words, I was a little bit freaked out. I had no idea how I was ever going to write an article that long. But now that I have started writing my drafts, I have discovered that it isn't so difficult after all. When I start typing, everything just seems to come together. Now I know that my article will never be perfect, but I think that so far it is coming along just fine.

Final Thoughts on We the Media

I thought that this book was GREAT compared to It Ain't Necessarily So. Gillmor does a great job explaining the different aspects of the media world. Before reading this book, I didn't know a whole lot about cookies and such. But now I have a greater knowledge of these items that deal with one of the most influential aspects of human life...the computer.
I really enjoyed all of the presentations on this book. They seemed to create better discussions than the other book. Through these presentations we, or at least I, was able to grasp some of the concepts better than just reading the novel.
This book has also helped me to understand ways in which one can analyze online journalism. I guess it isn't all bad after all.
