This site (and book) aims to help folks navigate the media flow that we’re all facing in this new age.

My goal is to help people become active and informed users of media, as consumers and as creators. We are in a media-saturated age, more so all the time, and we need to find ways to use media to our — and our society’s — best advantage.

I’m teaching this topic now at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, expanding on the concepts in the book–and including a number of things I didn’t know about at the time I wrote it. It’s an ever-evolving project.

Josh Sprague worked with me to create the original Mediactive site. I thank him for his efforts.
