Question Assignment for the History Exercise
Note# Do not use any outside sources; instead, use the articles and lecture ppts that have been uploaded. Thank you very much!!
So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed, a book about digital media and public shaming by journalist Jon Ronson, was published in 2015. In the New York Times Magazine, he shared a brief excerpt from the book. He wrote a post for The Guardian about his experiences after the snippet was published.
Please read the following two articles:
1. Justine Sacco’s Life Was Ruined by One Stupid Tweet
2. How the online trolls decided to target me
PLEASE NOTE: Several of the quotations in these pieces are taken from tweets directed towards Ronson and the persons about whom he writes; many of the quotations contain rude and insulting language.
Please respond to the following inquiries:
Please summarize the two articles in a few words. What happened to Justine Sacco and Lindsey Stone, in Ronson’s opinion? What happened to him when the New York Times Magazine article was published?
Is Ronson optimistic or pessimistic about the future of digital media? Please include more detail in your response by citing specific examples from the articles.
Compare and contrast Ronson’s perspective on digital media/the Internet with at least one of the perspectives presented in the course lecture.
Should we see this situation as a continuation of the culture wars of the 1980s and 1990s, as Ronson suggests? Why do you think that is?
