During the semester, we have read some classic works on media ecology by Ong, Meyrowitz and Postman. Your paper topic should address issues of media ecology and relate them to your own experience with using technology. Begin by selecting a communication technology, medium, or activity (talking on a cell phone, texting , tweeting, facebook, watching television,playing video games blogging) that you would like to write about. Borrowing from the theories of at least one media exology theorists, describe the impact of this technology from a media ecology perspective. Explain your position and be sure to support it with examples, case studies, news stories etc…. Then write about how you think technology has had some type of influence over you, your family and friends. or our overall culture. For example, has it altered the nature of interpersonal communication interactions? Does one form of communication replace or supplement other means of communication? Does it change our notions of what spaces are considered private or public? Has it increased or decreased civility?
