The Information Ecosystem

In this formal, sourced, academic essay, you will revisit the framing text for the course from Module 1: “The Information Ecosystem,” by Knute O. Berger and update it for the contemporary/ present moment. Where Berger discusses the rise of cable, telephones, and computers, you may focus on streaming, smartphones, and the Internet. Essentially, you should describe the current information ecosystem to include how information is created and shared as well as how information is consumed.
