Discusses how “new new media” are transforming our culture

Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Wikipedia, Foursquare, blogging ... these and other “new new media“ are used by hundreds of millions worldwide and are transforming just about every aspect of our culture from the way we elect presidents to how we watch television.  New New Media details the benefits, opportunities, and dangers of these transformations.

New new media, as opposed to the traditional “new media” of email and websites, allow and encourage all consumers to become producers, readers to become writers and publishers, viewers to become performers - and have engendered such worldwide movements as The Arab Spring, The Tea Party,  and Occupy Wall Street.  This catalytic feature of contemporary media prompts an entirely new look at how mass media, culture, and industry are undergoing the most profound changes since the advent of the alphabet and the printing press.
