On Tuesday, we’ll be shifting our attention to concepts relating to “interactivity,” a somewhat contested but nonetheless commonly used term to describe the kinds of activities and practices digital networked media users have available to them as a consequence of their affordances.
To get at that, I’d like you to look at the following:
- Janet Murray “From Game-Story to Cyberdrama” (be sure you read both the article and the three responses in the links at the end (Aarseth, Loyall, and Murray).
- Mat Honan “I Liked Everything I Saw on Facebook“
- Elan Morgan “I Quit Liking Things on Facebook“
- Adam Westbrook “The Web Video Problem“
As you look at these, consider how you interact with digital networked media in your own daily life, and how the ways those media are constructed shape your day-to-day interactions with them. What can you do? What can’t you do? How do you interact with these media day-to-day?
