Viral Media Lab, Kathleen Sweeney
Kathleen Sweeney began a blog archive in Fall 2011 for her course, NCOM 3005 – Viral Media Lab, and it has since become a resource reaching beyond the school.
The Viral Media Lab operates as a living archive of viral social media messages, videos and memes for social change. Students contribute to the Lab’s social media outputs (Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, Pinterest) in addition to longer blog posts, and are producing original videos, photo series and multimedia research project on the topic of viral media via Remix, Street Art, Gaming and Eco-Design Innovation. The goals of the project include how-tos for best practices in social media for social change, interviews with luminaries and cross-pollinations with like-minded online resources.
