Web2.0 has a workgroup, and now those dedicated to advancing the world of democratized media, now have the Media 2.0 Workgroup.
“The Media 2.0 Workgroup is a group of industry commentators, agitators and innovators who believe that the phenomena of democratic participation will change the face of media creation, distribution and consumption. Join the conversation…”
– Chris Saad
Chris had the vision to start this movement, but here’s why I joined. I share the passion for extending the conversation from one-to-one, one-to-many, and many-to-many. By aligning with other thought leaders, we can extend our voices to include those who have yet to join the conversation. While some call this social media, I’m more interested in the tools that socialize media – which extend to almost everything we (the people) will participate in, now and in the future.
Traditional media is learning to adapt, but it has a long way to go. This is about reaching people across the chasm and through the long tail – and having them not only consume, but also share and publish information as well.
You can view other similar voices and thought leaders in the new media landscape on the Media 2.0 Workgroup page.
