CATS-affiliated researchers in the news

John Dimmick, John Feaster, and Greg Hoplamazian's article in the current issue of New Media & Society is the subject of a recent post on Ars Technica, a popular tech-news site. In their article, Dimmick and colleagues take an ecological perspective when examining the potential displacement effects of mobile technologies on news consumers' consumption practices. They find that in 2007, when the time-diary data was collected, mobile technologies were being used to get news at times and in places where traditional media were largely absent. The journalist at Ars Technica summarizes the study and reflects on what this lack of displacement might mean.
