This is the first of what I hope will be several posts from the 2006 Public Broadcasting New Media Conference in Seattle. Actually, today I attended a pre-conference new media seminar for CEOs put on by Andrew Nachison and Dale Peskin of the Media Center of the American Press Institute. One take-home from their presentation was a list of three "propositions," general shifts that are taking place in society (below). --Dennis
- The digital everything -- all news and information is or will be represented digitally and everything will be impacted by that.
- Know-trust networks -- new kinds of networks are replacing the traditional trusted intermediaries (e.g., craigslist).
- The individual -- shift from institutional power to individual power.
