Choose a specific web/information service you use regularly (e.g. amazon two-day shipping, mobile phone networks, tiktok recommendations, or propose your own to us).

Choose a specific web/information service you use regularly (e.g. Amazon two-day shipping, mobile phone networks, TikTok recommendations, or propose your own to us). In a 400-600 word essay, address the following:
First, describe and draw your own mental model for how you understand how this system works, starting with your initial point of contact during a typical interaction (e.g. the search bar in Amazon, dialing a number or opening an app on your mobile phone, your initial login screen on TikTok, etc.). Also (briefly) reflect on the origins of your mental model–that is, how you figured out what you know/believe about the system’s functionality–and how “typical” you think your mental model is compared to the general population. While this is a more reflexive and speculative exercise, please bring in concrete examples whenever possible.
Finally, analyze the design affordances, disaffordances, and dysaffordances you observe in the system. Please be concrete, providing screenshots or other specifics when possible.

This does not mean simply to be negative, to harbor dystopian views about technology, or to be a pessimist, or a luddite, or a crank.

Clearly and accurately references the argument/arguments of the readings you are drawing on, using your own words and without merely quoting; and
Takes a position on this argument, but do so in a way that uses sound logic or credible evidence to support your position. You should avoid referencing personal experiences as ‘proof’ unless specifically asked to do so; instead, stick to what is (or isn’t) stated in the readings themselves.
The purpose of the weekly assignments is to engage with and think about the assigned texts for that week, to practice writing (and consequently to practice thinking), and to practice communicating clearly. In particular, the assignments provide an opportunity to work on thinking critically** about the structures of technology and information systems and their interactions with social worlds.
**What does it mean to think critically? This does not mean simply to be negative, to harbor dystopian views about technology, or to be a pessimist, or a luddite, or a crank. It does mean being skeptical. It means considering the evidence presented and its strengths and weaknesses. It means examining the arguments being made and their logic. It means being willing to examine your own assumptions, biases, and lacunae and potentially to change your mind in the face of strong evidence.

When was the platform founded?

Chart the history and geography of your chosen platform, as well as some of the prominent leaders who have been involved with it (e.g. founders, C-suite executives, etc.). When was the platform founded? Has ownership of it changed hands (e.g. was it acquired by another company), or were there attempted purchases? What other companies have the prominent figures at the platform been involved in (or where have earlier prominent figures moved on to now)? Where are its offices located, and where else have they been located in the past? Have there been any reports from employees about what it’s like to work there (or any scandals involving the workplace)? Does the platform report on employee demographics? Write a 400-600 word essay exploring these questions using the platform you chose last week as your example to analyze, and be sure to reference the readings in your response.
