Meanland: Reading Without Privacy

Listen to Meanland: Reading Without Privacy

Today, we’re all reading and writing more than ever, on text messages, on Twitter and on Facebook. But has social networking broken down the distinction between our public and our private lives? What are the rules for writing in forms that are so intimate and entirely open?

Jonathan Green, Alison Croggon, Jeff Sparrow and Sophie Cunningham discuss whether we tweet as ourselves or as representatives of our employers, and ask: is new media helping us work differently or just work harder?

Chaired by Michael Williams.
