For example, you might read “Reddit and the struggle to detoxify the Internet” and discuss how an online space could function to minimize trolls and other toxic content, in a way that is different than current online discussion forums.Different articlesmight better lend themselves to this assignment(some are less media-based, i.e. do notpick the article about paper jams!), but part of thisassignment is to creatively come up with a mediainnovation to a particularlyframedtechnological discussion, which will be provided by the various articles in The New Yorker. Connectyour initialdiscussion and analysis of the articlewith your own innovationand then elaborate and expand your argument.Keep in mind that you should make a media-based argumentin your essay, since this class is a media studies course and nota business class.Therefore, write to your audience, which is me, someone in media studies and not someone with an MBA. As a result, you do not need to worry excessively about costs, venture funding, etc. at this point.While this essay should allow you to use your imagination and creativity, it can also be challenging because you still need to develop your innovationin relation to legitimate areas of concern connected to digital media and technology.
