- Knowing - students will read excerpts from Lanham's "The Economics of Attention," along with this Interview with Lanham.

- blog about their experience with HootSuite (and, optionally, Altomail) and how tools like these address the issues raised in Lanham's comments.
- create a useful and functional HootSuite dashboard to handle their social meia interactions (for at least 3 social media.)
