Public vs. Private

Yesterday I went to a panel discussion here at Northeastern titled "Public Private: Intersections in New Media". It was moderated by David Marshall from Comm Studies and Dan Kennedy from my journlism dept. was one of the panelists. Here is a link to the materials that the library put together. Part of the discussion was defining what "new media" is. Another part was the whole concept of how what used to be viewed as private information has moved into the public sphere on the Internet - for example - - which we've talked about in class. Our student newspaper - the NUNews also has a frontpage story on facebook this week - (Note: I was interviewed and quoted in the story)
