- I will deduct 3.5 points (~15% of the maximum number of points) from exams that are handed in up to 10 hours late (e.g. before 18.00 Monday night).
- I will deduct 6 points (~25% of the maximum number of points) from exams that are handed in up to 24 hours late (e.g. before 08.00 Tuesday morning). A 6-point deduction corresponds to a lowering of the grade with one step (a B becomes a C etc.)
- Exams that are handed in later than 24 hours after the deadline automatically fail and will not be graded. You will then have to do the exam again at a later point in time. It will obviously not be easier to pass the exam the second time around so please make sure to hand it in (in time).

- Benkler, "The trouble with mass media" (chapter 6).(35 pages)
- Fallows, "How to save the news". The Atlantic, June 2010. (12 pages (in the original print magazine))
- Witt (2006), "Constructing a framework to enable an open source reinvention of journalism". (10 pages)
- Gillmor (2006), "We are all reporters now" (BBC News) (3 pages)
- Gillmor (2006), "Introduction" (11 pages) from his book "We the media: Grassroots journalism by the people, for the people".
- What opportunities may arise due to changes in information ownership and shifts of power induced by transformations of markets for information services and due to new rules governing the networked information economy?
- Can traditionally marginalized groups be empowered and strengthened economically while offering services - collection of environmental data - of value to those who are in power?
- What can this mean for the future market for weather information services and weather information networks (owned by governments)? How will social media impact those markets and the roles of governments, service providers and individuals?
- Can we identify other cases where individuals may be empowered by new technologies as their knowledge may become regarded as a valuable resource and perhaps even a service with a price tag?

- A poster (I will provide you with paper)
- A short talk where you present your poster and lead the audience through your main ideas
- A short document (4-6 pages of text + supporting pictures) where you document your social media solution ("Think of it as a way to document and present your project to people who will not have the opportunity to see you poster")

- Go for depth before breadth (”I will mainly focus on…”). I know you can not cover all the literature in a few pages so it is often better to choose one aspect or question and delve into it rather than to try to provide an overview of the whole area or provide a broader - but more shallow - analysis of many different things.
- Benkler (and most other texts) are written with a primarily American perspective. Feel free to use examples or correlate with the situation in other countries from which you have relevant information or experiences.
- Feel free to change or adapt the title of your paper to something that better fits the topic and the contents of your paper. You all created many intriguing titles for last week's assignment; "Free your music", "Marketing in a nonmarket", "Working for free?", "Free software as social media", "The power of us", "Power to the people", "The value of value in an economy", "Information and its price", "To buy or not to buy?", "The costs of creation", "One small tweet, a giant step for mankind", "Distributed thought", "Web 3.0?", "Indonesian social media scene"

This course is taken by a very diverse group of students, coming from a wide range of countries and with a wide variety of experiences of computer technologies in general and social media in particular. This seminar is our first and best chance to get to know each other a little better and this is also the reason why it is important for you to go to you "regular" seminar group at this specific occasion.
The instructions for seminar assignment 1 is now available in Bilda (in "Bilda/Documents/Seminar assignments").
Do note that this is the first time I ever try something like this - I hope everything will turn out fine and that we will not be visited by technical "gremlins" of any kind. Please read and follow the instructions carefully to decrease the chance of any technical problems.
Please pose any questions you might have about the assignment as comments to this blog post.
