    Themes from readings (from students):

    Fear – what can tech use to shape our future content-related professions. How am I going to get paid.
    New biz models
    Everyone can publish (blog) w/out verification – weakening the news industry
    Marketing/advertising affected because it’s so easy to find reviews, real users talking about product
    Biz can’t credit a watered down message – need to facilitate a conversation
    How quickly new digital tech has proliferated – not exclusive to certain social or economic demographic
    Letting someone else provide input allows other voices but anonymity can jeopardize the message
    Change in relationship between journalist and audience
