Faculty Member, Kathleen Sweeney Quoted in The New Yorker

Media Studies faculty member, Kathleen Sweeney, was recently quoted in The New Yorker on viral media (she teaches courses on viral media, social media and social change and runs a blog called The Viral Media Lab)
Here is the quote:  Kathleen Sweeney, who teaches courses about viral media at the New School, told me, “There’s a difference between ‘I want to change the world’ and ‘I want to change the world, and along the way I want to make millions of dollars.’ You can start off with one mission, but then you start to notice, We get way more traffic when we put up cat videos, and your mission shifts.”
