After reading, annotating, and considering Gladwell’s “Small Change (Links to an external site.),” upload one concise and considered paragraph in response to each of the following questions:
- Discuss weak and strong connections and how location/space (dorms v. digital) impacts connection. Offer an example from your experience of how a space has impacted a connection.
- Discuss the difference between networks and hierarchies. Think of a group you’ve participated in and describe where it landed on the spectrum between loose network and militant hierarchy.
- Discuss Sasha and the sidekick. What was Gladwell’s takeaway? What was Shirky’s? What is your takeaway?
