The New Media
Maria Corte Maidagan
"To a man with an internet connection, every thought and every movement sounds like a tweet or status update."
"Memory has always been social. Now we're using search engines and computers to augment our memories, too."
- Clive Thompson
"The question isn't, 'What do we want to know about people?', It's, 'What do people want to tell about themselves?'"
"Social media has infected the world with a sickening virus called vanity."
- Kellie Elmore
Edward Kineslla III
"We shape our tools and our tools shape us."
- Wilson Miner
"In the name of progress, our official culture is striving to force the new media to do the work of the old."
"We are the generation of Social Media, Our biggest Revolution is a Tweet of 141 Characters."
Sandra Chami Kassis
"I started the site when I was 19. I didn't know much about business back then."
"A brand is no longer what we tell the consumer it is â€“ it is what consumers tell each other it is."
- Scott Cook
"Everyone here has the sense that right now is one of those moments when we are influencing the future."
"Today we are beginning to notice that the new media are not just mechanical gimmicks for creating worlds of illusion, but new languages with new and unique powers of expression."
"Social tools leave a digital audit trail, documenting our learning journeyâ€”often an unfolding storyâ€”and leaving a path for others to follow."
"You are what you share."
"Social media's greatest assets - anonymity, 'virality,' interconnectedness - are also its main weaknesses."
"Social media isn't something that you "do", instead you have to "be" social."
"By giving people the power to share, we're making the world more transparent."
"Our social tools are not an improvement to modern society, they are a challenge to it."
"We cannot measure, what it is we do not know to value."
"Privacy is dead, and social media holds the smoking gun."
