Ask yourself: How does New Media impact society? Business? What can it be used to do? What potential does New Media have to impact modern thought daily activities?

 

The Internet of Things includes the connectivity between objects such as furniture, environments, clothing, ect and between those objects, networks and people.

For examples, look at:

Design as a business or social change tool involves “thinking big”. Do people overlook the importance of design? Are there major societal changes that occur as a result of design? Can design be used to accomplish a task?
