At the crossroads of journalism and technology.
Meeting Notes October 8, 1996
Present were: Remzi, Brian, Tom, Seung-Hoon, Amin, Jean
We discussed a list of potential movies we could watch. We came up with the following three:
Things to Come
When Worlds Collide
We decided that Remzi would pick up one of these movies from Blockbuster and that we would watch it together on Wednesday, October 16 at 1 pm.
Topic: Journalism on the net, with Brian Dennis as Editor
Information disseminated through Internet
Possible feature articles for the issue
Very narrowly focused publication on the net (Brett Butler home page) Seung-Hoon will review a number of such sites
Layout of Journalism sites, and the ease with which information can be retrieved. Remzi will review a few such sites.
First Hand information now available on the Internet (outgrowth of phones, faxes, and short wave radio)
Changing roles of journalists, Jean
We decided to read excerpts from Negroponte's "Being Digital". We will discuss this reading at a future meeting in addition to the New Yorker article entitled "Only Disconnect" by james Wolcott.
We also decided that photocopies should be made for everyone.
Remzi will choose some relevant readings from the snazzy looking "Resisting the Virtual Life".
We could not figure out a way to turn of netsape's so-called "cookie" mechanism and decided that Netscape's help system is, at best, weak.
