Pro/Con Factors influenced by the media How people often view a discipline is likely influenced by the media: television, movies, radio, newspapers, celebrities, etc. The media can be used to elevate or reduce the stature of a particular field, which, in turn, impacts the interest young people may have in pursuing that field as a future career. Dita provided pictures & analysis, Lydia provided a couple YouTube links from the IT Crowd, and I filled in with a few more videos. TV Show: Criminal Minds Penelope Garcia Garcia is a technical analyst for the BAU unit of the FBI. She is comical, fun-loving, and changes her appearance a lot. On one episode, you would see her with bright red her, and on the next episode she would have black hair, the next she’ll have blond hair, etc. Garcia is very confident in her hacking skills. Garcia is into MMORPG online gaming. She often calls other people with some random pet names such as “sweet cheeks, hot stuff, sexy cat” and many more. Sometimes, this would create an awkward situation when she doesn’t know that she was on speaker phones with local authorities or with the FBI’s assistant director. Garcia works in a dark office full of computers which she calls her lair. Comparison to other characters: Why the tech girl is the only chubby one? Does working in IT make people fat?
