This post isn’t meant as a kick at traditional media – what I want to show you today is how the playing field is now level for all people who want to have a say in our world. This is an exciting time for everyone involved in the media industry. In fact it has been like this for awhile, but it is worth reiterating.
Even with everything else that is happening around us (down economy, newspaper layoffs) you do have to look around in awe at the communications revolution we are living through. At no time in history have individuals and organizations been on such equal footing.
Despite what area of communications you are involved in, you have to admit this democratization of media is a positive for society itself. Even if a few people are hurt short term, we must look at what is going on from a long term perspective and embrace the changing world around us and the possibilities it brings.
