The 13 theses at college

Look around a college campus. So much diversity. People speaking so many different languages. Things in common with these different languages are conveyed in the thirteen theses.

Think about the conversations you hear throughout the day...what are the ones that you remember the most? Gossip, stories, news, lectures? This follows along with theses 1 and 2 as they convey the saying, "You are what you attend to."The ones that you remember most are the ones that you probably are around everyday and how you go about living your life.

When you are in a conversation with others around you do you notice one who always buts into someone else's story to link it back to something they did. It gets really annoying right? Well they are just trying to compete for the attention of group. (theses 3&4) It happens in everyday life and I'm pretty sure we have all experienced it.

Pictures that have so much stuff in them that no one can tell what is supposed to be the main focus of the picture are available to anyone. Same goes with media. There can be so much information in one mediation that the audience can not interpret what the author wanting to convey. There are also authors who give a message to others just to attract the attention because they feel that they need the attention to live out there lives. (theses 5&6)

Everyone who follows social media can relate to have something pop up that they click on to see what other information is available through the link. The internet is so advanced that it can recognize what you browse more to make available to you through the social media of your choice. These 'suggested' links can be seen as distractions to the reasons you are using your social media (theses7&8)

Linking back to the example of authors sending a message out just for attention, the internet and social media has made this situation explode. When a message is posted on social media it can be linked to people all over  the world, which can attract lots of attention from many different audiences. (theses 9)
