This was a fascinating lecture, and hearing from Professor Aaron Hanlon speak about changes in how we use and analyze data was truly eye opening.  As someone who has grown up in an age where technology surrounds us, it can be hard to reconcile on a personal level where we were as a society not long ago before such changes had ensued.  Notwithstanding, Professor Hanlon’s analysis of this phenomenon, and his critique on its changes to us as a society opened me up to how we must go about using the tools we now have at out disposal, and finding the most effective ways to do so.  Overall, I greatly enjoyed the lecture, and was intrigued by the issues raised by Professor Hanlon.
