MediaSavvy and Doc searls on fcc deregulation, media concentration, convergence;
People’s use of media is changing. Newspapers are in a steady decline before they drop off the cliff of an inflection point. The networks are living on borrowed time. The recording industry is circling the wagons. And radio is in chaos.
Instead my hope is with the Net. I want regulation to protect the end-to-end nature of the Net, which will allow any of us to broadcast whatever we please to anybody else who cares to watch and listen.
Whatever way the fcc decision goes, I’m looking forward to seeing what the media landscape will be like in 5 years.
