3.0 Chapter 3: Tools and Techniques for the Mediactive Consumer
Now that we’ve considered some principles, let’s get practical and put those principles into practice. The key is going deeper into the news, leveraging your skepticism and curiosity and common sense toward that moment when you can say to yourself, “Ah, I get it.”
What’s involved? Mostly an adventurous spirit; remember, this is about exploration.
Among other things, you need to:
- Find trustworthy sources of information.
- Vet sources you don’t already have reason to trust.
- Join the conversation(s).
As always in this book, what follows is far from comprehensive. Rather, it’s a surface-level look at an almost infinitely wide and deep topic. Look for many more specifics and examples at the Mediactive website.
