Although I understand the weight and importance of academia and the writings of the old and wise, I can’t help but feel more drawn into discussions between equals, that’s why my online resource is a blog created by students like myself, who in 2012 created 161 blog posts about technology in the modern world. The blogs tagline reads “A blog by undergraduates exploring the impact of technology in today’s world.” and as I’m studying network society and the media this seems like a suitable resource to get my brain working.
The posts range from communication through social networking to ethics in technology and touches on everything in-between, having such a range of topics to think about and so many posts to refer to, makes this a perfect online resource. The blog also supplies references to academic writings and other resources online which helps create a larger list of potential research material for myself and adds more to the overall conversation that I have joined through this module.
The reason I chose to have my online resource as a blog is that no matter what we are studying there will be a post that supports the topic, I don’t have to read a two hundred page academic book or rely on a single article. The blog has so much to offer in terms of posts related to the main subject that I could find multiple posts that cover a large area of each weeks topic.
