You do not need to address these questions in this order, and you may spend more time on some questions than on others, but you should address them all at some point in your paper.
You may also use additional sources to back up any arguments that you make. However, you should only cite from reputable sources that report on tech and media, whether this is the New York Times or other newspaper; sites like Vox, Vice, or Ars Technica; or another reputable outlet. The kind of source that you use matters here. If you are unsure about whether a source is appropriate, email me.
Throughout the paper, stick close to the readings. I will be looking for your ability to use specific ideas from the readings to answer these questions. Use direct quotations and make sure that you explain the quotations in your own words, when necessary.
Remember, you must complete this assignment in only four to five DOUBLE-SPACED pages. Part of the assignment involves sticking within this page limit (though if you bleed over a bit onto page 6, that’s okay). This means you should “jump right in” to the assignment from the opening paragraph. You don’t need introductory paragraphs with long, sweeping, generalized sentences. (Please do not write such sentences!)
