As the title says, the relationships between social life and media is the main point we going to discuss in this week. There is a shapely relation schema about the social media. I’d like to talk about connections at first. Social websites, like Twitter and Facebook, they linked to individual directly, people write their profile, show their motivation, and gain their reputation, and also their personality, status, sharing will attract the common followers,then a series of interaction is stimulated. Moreover, the most surface interaction way is conversation, members to members, members to outside,broadcasting. Meanwhile, communications take place in community. In other words, this chain connected and worked started from here. In my judgment, i believe there is a vital point among these medium, i think the part of “individual” is the basic role to make the relationship work. Individual finds expression in communication,it equals to individual can gather things together anyway.Like human beings’s role in food chain. Individuals built system for social life, they revise it, prove it, develop it, and keeps it runs.

To be frank, i have no idea about why this reading exists in the “course reading” folder, i thought all readings were connected with Integrated Media 2 directly, like software introduction, project ideas, boarder researches about what we going to do in this semester. BUT, i have to say this reading is one of the most impressive i have ever read, because of the phobia of some creatures, even “monsters” as what the author listed. I always resign myself to face some horrifying, but i winced. Take an example, i do not like Spider, i try to treat my roommate’s pet friendly, i know it is not poisonous, but i still…. The interesting phenomenon is these things always attract me at the same time. As the author emphases repulsion and attraction. On the other hand, in terms of “monsters” itself, there is without a exactly definition to describe what is a real monster,behemoths?leviathans?Dragon?Or genetically and developmentally disabled people? There is a strong sense of sorrow coming when some “freaking shows” and “minster spectacles” appeared, this kind of exploitation of this kind of abnormal people is in the lowest points on the ethical level of modern civilisation. Anyway, like the author presents that ” of course not all monsters are evil”. I really love some cinema roles, like vampire, Edwards.
