Discussion Group Focus

The spread of information technology and the breathtaking speed of the expansion of the Internet and multimedia is transforming the ways in which we live our lives. Our pre-digital knowledge of social life, conceptions of art and definitions of public/private is rapidly becoming obsolete.

Our focus group is looking at a variety of issues related to how society is adjusting (or not) to technology. As the academic backgrounds of this focus group covers many areas (computer science, rhetoric, sociology, business, visual art/advertising, and music), we have decided to utilize this knowledge by choosing a format in which we can all share our expertise with each other.
