Our overreaching goal is to study models and issues surrounding digital
content. In this there are two general areas of consideration. The first
area includes economic issues, including issues about pricing, distribution,
and intellectual property. The second area includes the actual content
issues, such as authorship, personalization, and the actual forms of digital
content. In order to limit our focus, we will concentrate on the distribution
of news over the Internet in our discussions.
Group Project: Subtopics
Each of these suptopics represents a specific area of "expertise"
in which a group member displayed interest. Each member will get an indepth
understanding of his relevant topic, and present some sort of write-up
for the site. As a group we will sythesize these discussions into
a cohesive conclusion about the nature of news distribution on the Internet.
We met and watched the following two movies. Included is a brief
one paragraph commentary from our group members about the aspects of the
movies that we found related well to the class.
