CCTea Podcast: Episode 6 (Internet Semantics & Etiquette)


In Episode 6 of CCTea, Zach & Kevin discuss the tricky topic of Internet Semantics and Etiquette, and how the ways in which we carry ourselves online can often spill over into our physical lives and relationships. They ponder the different methods of communicating online and their effects on understanding; the recent rise in image-based communication; modern dating and networking; and generational differences in communication expectations.

So what are the protocols for the torrential flow of digital information? Are the bountiful modes of communication and expression available online allowing us to better articulate and convey meaning, or are they adding layers of depth and ambiguity to our correspondence, and leaving us all anxiously analyzing the smallest details of semiotics and semantics? Today, the tea will tell.
