The Writing Centre at 40 Speaker Series highlights the broad field of communication, and its intersections with politics, culture, media, technology, and our digital lives. This four-part series examines ways that communication helps us craft ourselves as social beings in a digital world, looks at how we engage with media and our social networks, and explores how we move through and communicate with the world.

Our first guest is Nora Young from CBC Radio's Spark in PHY 145. 

Nora Young poster Nora Young is an informed and ideal guide for anyone looking to examine—and plan for—the ever-changing high-tech landscape; she helps audiences understand trends in social media, big  data, wearable tech and more, while showing them how to better protect their privacy in our  increasingly digital world. The host and creator of Spark on CBC Radio, and the author of The Virtual Self, she demystifies technology and explains how it is shaping our lives and the larger world in which we live.
