Symposium 2

Our Networked Media lecture, or symposium, this week was very interesting. We discussed the idea of stories, even considering the three act structure coined by Aristotle. Our lecturer, Adrian, even got us to explain what reading is, beginning with how to use a book, which was quite comical in itself.

He went on to explain that a book always has a first and last page. There in no avoiding this. There are pages inside; of course, right – it wouldn’t be a book without them. The internet however, is a whole other story. There are no pages, no beginning, no end. It is just a screen that can transform into a multitude of information. The internet is limitless. What an exciting world we live in. It is our role as media students to take advantage of this and use it in the most innovative way possible.
