The intersection of technology, education and media.
Welcome to my weekly newsletter in which I will cover some interesting angles on Technology, Education, and Media. No matter where you live or what sector you might be involved in, you’re probably passionate about where tech and education is headed. And what it means to live in a hyper-connected, over-caffeinated, attention-deficit society.
What you will find here might be a different version of what I blog about on my 18-year old blog, Hoipolloi Report. As I have explained elsewhere, this began as an experiment, for my Writing and Publishing class. How does an old-school format like a newsletter fit into a fractured media ecosystem? How do (and where do) people get their news? Why does someone dive into TikTok and Twitter, and balance it off with subscriptions to long-form journalism? Is doomscrolling killing the desire to deep-dive into content? If so, what should content creators do, instead of throwing up their hands in the air?
I’m learning something about this as well!
And I’ll be sharing my findings and analysis with you if you stay. As always, if it gets too boring or academic, feel free to unsubscribe. That will teach me and my students something too!
