Overview and Reflection:

During this class we were given this list of categories and we had to come up with the first words that come up in our mind relating to each category. I think overall, the main words that stood out to me were Censorship, Genuine involvement, Stereotypes, Manipulation, and Privacy. I think without realizing it, I was influenced a lot by the theories that I have been exploring recently that all pertain to the Internet. It was interesting to see that the words that stood out to me all relate to the things that I have been thinking about in relation to my project. This was overall and interesting exercise and I think I am now more confident that I am interested in these concepts and I do want to discuss them and develop them in more detail in my project.
