Web 2.0 brought a more interactive relationship between creating and consuming content than ever seen before. That interaction is shaping our lives and changing our media in sometimes fascinating, and sometimes threatening ways.
Alexandra Samuel joins Chris Kenneally to talk about the economics and the ecology of social media. She’s the Director of the Social + Interactive Media Centre at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver, and a blogger for Oprah.com and the Harvard Business Review. She shares research on the future form of the e-book, as well as her thoughts on culture as a community rather than a personal asset.
