A must-read for all journalists, media-activists, content creators or anyone with at least one account on any social network out there. Jan 27, Tatiana Sheko rated it really liked it Shelves: A book which works well as a reference book over time as well as a one-off read.
Much to think about. I’ve enjoyed following Dan on social media and have participated in his online courses. I preferred the e-course four stars to the book -perhaps because I am not a journalist or a student of journalism- and found gillomr e-course mediactice structured and clearer, especially in the first sections of the course.
Both the e-course and the book are full of excellent references, and it pays to take time to explore many of them. Journalism is a field in turmoil as the old print-based business model draws to an end, good and bad citizen gilllmor confuse issues, all sorts of ethical problems -some hoary and some newish- crop up, key issues on net neutrality gkllmor freedom of expression flare up and the noise to news ratio soars through the ceiling.
Dan Gillmor – Wikipedia
Gillmor tackles this changing “eco-system” and provides some common-sense principles, sound advice and useful tool recommendations. Even though it may be obvious to you that you cannot believe everything you find on the net or catch on the news, in my opinion, this book will almost certainly provide you with some worthwhile tips that will make you a better media consumer and creator.
Dec 27, John rated it liked it Shelves: As one of those who spend their lives immersed in the study and tools of media literacy, I found the book a little too simplistic, but it would serve as a good introduction on how to create and consume media for the citizen journalist or the student just starting out.
There’s some good material and several resources. Great and somewhat chilling read on the current state of all things digital media. Gillmor discusses the need for all to be involved in what is going on with Copyright, social networking, net neutrality, and more.
Feb 24, Barry Eisler rated it it was amazing. A mediactkve book about what establishment journalism should, and villmor citizen journalism really is. Excellent for journalists, people who think they’re journalists, people who want to be journalists, and for all consumers of news.
Mar 17, Brian rated it really liked it. I look at this as kind of a survival guide for life in the world of new media. Dan is a scholar at the Walter Cronkite School – where I work – and is highly respected as a top expert on the future of journalism. Sep 29, Mike rated it liked it. I had to read this book for a class and didn’t entirely dislike it.
It was definitely bearable and very informative. While the author can be extreme at times, his views have definitely impacted the way I will view media and journalism in the future. Jul 20, Dirk rated it really liked it. Interesting book with jediactive information and web links to follow. Very practical with regards to the use of all kinds of online tools, social networking sites etc.
