New MIT Book: Hanging Out, Messing Around, and Geeking Out


On the MIT site, this new title is available for download. I thought it might be of interest:

Hanging Out, Messing Around, and Geeking Out
Kids Living and Learning with New Media

An examination of young people's everyday new media practices—including video-game playing, text-messaging, digital media production, and social media use.






I love that you can download it for free. I'm especially looking forward to the section on "creative production". I think we (especially the older we) have a lot to learn about everyday media production practices.



Until now, I hadn't heard about this book.  Appreciate your letting us know, Patrick!  Hope all's well.
