Assignment 5

In the reading assigned this week (pg. 47-60) what stood out to me the most was how the process of preserving and distributing information is not a task that can be done individually and that it is something that involves many disciplines. There may be dozens of contributors (authors, librarians, coders, interns, programmers, etc.) that contribute just to one single product. The presenter/guest that I found most interesting so far in our class was the anthropologist Ben Marwick. What I found most interesting about his presentation is how he interpreted all of his raw data from Twitter and represented in a variety of ways, especially with the different types of graphs he used.
