I always enjoy reading the Atlantic’s Media Diet series and other columns like it, and with Warren Ellis starting to post more about how he consumes information, the idea of tracking the words and sounds and videos that come in and out of our daily lives has been on my mind quite a bit.
So, let’s take a day to monitor the media we all consume — as super-honestly as we can. (For example, if we were doing today, I would have to admit that I watched the Matt Smith episode of Secret Diary of a Call Girl while reading my morning feeds in bed.)
Why everyone on the same day? Because it’ll be interesting to see how different people experience a day’s news and pop culture — should make for a unique collection of stories.
If you’re game, then get set to start tracking the articles you read, music you listen to and stuff you watch as soon as you wake up on Wednesday, September 26th. Then, write it up at your leisure, using the hashtag #InfoDiet.
Sound like fun? Then get psyched! Maybe reblog/retweet/etc this? Totally your call. Again,Wednesday, September 26th is #InfoDiet Day. Should be a good time.
