That’s the title of this new project. It will be a combination website plus book plus more — an initiative that aims to help folks navigate the media flow that we’re all facing in this new age.
What’s it about?
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.
Special thanks to Josh Sprague, who has been working with me on this “beta” site. Josh is a graduate of the Master’s program at the Cronkite School of Journalism at ASU. He has researched and experimented with emerging media trends in journalism at the New Media Innovation Lab. When not writing about citizen media tools and wrangling WordPress for Mediactive, he is working on a startup developed within the Knight Center for Digital Media Entrepreneurship.
This will be a public effort. I hope you’ll be part of it.
