for Tues 18 Feb and next week

We’re shifting topic to social media: aka new media, Web 2.0, participatory media.

Twitter, yes.
FB, yes.
Wikipedia, blogging.

But also the social practices of tagging, remixing, commenting. Fan fiction. Plagiarism. Changes in the state of knowledge and knowing. A crises of knowledge? Distributed knowledge. Changes in ontology. Death of the expert.
