Doc Searls

As part of the CITS Distinguished lecture series, authors and authorities on new media technology J.D. Lasica and Doc Searls will have a conversation about the rise of new forms of citizen media. An explosion of participatory media is underway, as people bypass traditional media to share their own works at outlets such as Ourmedia.org, Current.tv and NowPublic.com. Is this a fundamental shift in people’s relationship with the media? How do grassroots media differ from traditional media? What is the personal broadcasting revolution, and how do we know whom to trust when everyone is a publisher?
