DM+M 01: Introduction

What is it?
Analog vs Digital
Evolution of Media – rapidly moving from this to this?
Down side of Digital media
Digital Distribution: the dark side

On weekly basis, you will be producing serialized digital media. Write, make videos, make music, etc., but do it every week. The most important part of this project is not the media you produce, but the way in which it is distributed. How are you getting this creation out to a wider audience? Use FB, twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and any other social media platform or site. I will be paying close attention to your audience interactions, and self – promotion (likes, retweets, etc).
