The Society and Technology spring seminar will be on the new media: blogs, citizen journalists, camera-phone news coverage, and similar issues.

Much like the blogs we'll be talking about, most of our content will be user-generated. We're running a student-led weekly seminar focused on discussion, with a few guest presenters over the course of the quarter.
