Today I commenced reading for WEB207.  One of our assignments is to create a diary of our media consumption over a 24 hour period.  Wow!  Just thinking about it makes my mind boggle, and I don’t see myself as a huge consumer of media.  However when I start to think about what I’ve done just this morning – mobile phone both talking and texting, checking email – outlook and hotmail, checking facebook and msn messenger, chatting on yahoo messenger, re-familiarising myself with twitter and my wordpress blog……  It makes the mind boggle, really.

While the only hardware I’ve used has been my mobile and my laptop, the amount of information I’ve been exposed to and the various ways in which I’ve had contact with people is astonishing.  Once again I can feel my brain expanding from study, giving me new views on things I just take for granted.  Can’t wait to actually make a start, but I’m thinking perhaps Monday would be a good day to officially commence my diary.  For now, the weekend calls – gotta love work/life/study balance!
