I can totally understand that you would want some direction for lecture, seminars and readings in the weeks ahead. This will give you a general idea of topics as well as the appropriate chapter to read from Benkler each week. Benkler will be complemented by other texts as per my earlier instructions (before or on the same day I give my lectures (Wednesdays) at the latest).
Week 1: Introduction
Week 2: Industrial vs networked info society (seminar assignment for week 3 of the course, i.e. this week)
Benkler: Chapters 1-4 with an emphasis on chapters 2 and 3.
Week 3: Networks (seminar assignment for week 4, i.e. next week)
Benkler: Chapter 7, "Emergence of the networked public sphere" - primarily the second half of the chapter (p.241-272).
Week 4: Media convergence and community
Benkler: Chapter 5, "Autonomy, information and law" and chapter 8, "A culture both plastic and critical"
