An Eye on New Media

An Eye on New Media | Ken's Odds & Ends | Scoop.it

Welcome to 'Ken's Odds and Ends'. Click this link to go to my 'real' site.

Let me be the first to tell you that this "Odd's and Ends' site is not a polished Scoop.it Page. It is the 'waiting room' or 'overflow room' for my primary Scoop.it page which you can find here:
http://www.scoop.it/t/new-media-technology

The focus of that site is New Media in Society, Business & Classrooms

This site reflects those interests as well as some other scoops that don't fit directly into nice little boxes under the 'new media' umbrella.

Ken Morrison's insight:

I am trying to streamline my primary site.  Oddz and Endz is kind of an overflow of this original site but will have content that doesn't fit into nice little  boxes under the 'New Media' flag

The Unbearable Whiteness of Baseball

The Unbearable Whiteness of Baseball | Ken's Odds & Ends | Scoop.it
The sport is no longer America’s favorite pastime. Is it because of the rise of the N.B.A. and the N.F.L., or because of a racially coded obsession with “tradition”?
Ken Morrison's insight:
I forgot about how much some fans hated Ken Griffey Jr. wearing his hat backwards. This article talks about how MLB is doing well financially but is becoming less culturally relevant each season as they choose to not promote their non-white players.

Ken Morrison's insight:
This is one of the less condescending articles about trying to understand why Trump is embraced. Although I don't support Trump, it truly surprises me how far detached most of the media is from the people who do. Each condescending news story entrenches readers in their feelings that they will continue to be left unheard. This infinite loop is part of the problem.
