Who is this guy and why am I here?

My name is Alan Flaten and this is my blog for MMC6612 (New Media and a Democratic Society). You most likely know this already since the only people reading this blog are fellow classmates and my professor (Hi Professor McAdams!), so I’ll just post a silly picture of myself to slightly entertain you.


When I’m not running for my life from random animal attacks, I frantically studiously update irreverent meaningful blog post assignments for class touching on a variety of issues concerning the effects of new media on our society.  I’m a firm believer that the blog format can be a way of communicating thoughts and ideas in an entertaining way, separate from the sometimes stale traditional forms of media.  As such, I will do my best to fulfill the goals of my assignments in such a way that will be fun for both me as the writer and you as the reader.  At least until Professor McAdams threatens to fail me.
