Collaborative Work in Digital Democracy and Interactive Production of Personalized Information
MetadataShow full item record
This paper is grounded in the considerable body of scholarship examining the networks and interfaces of emergent media technologies, the ethics of appropriation of online content, and the importance of respect and ethics in collaboration. The theory that I shall seek to elaborate here puts considerable emphasis on cocreation in participatory cultures, competitive interaction between various media platforms in a converged news eco-system, the conditions of production of user-authored content, and gratifications of media participation. The results of the current paper converge with prior research on the experience of media consumption and production, the intersection of mass and interpersonal communication, and new modes of content production and information delivery.
