Looking forward to Media in Transition 5 @ MIT

MiT5 is just about a month away and I can’t wait. A tentative agenda has been posted. I’m especially looking forward to the sessions on Collaboration and Collective Intelligence and the one on Copyright and Fair Use. I’ve agreed to summarize Saturday’s sessions and will probably write something on Friday’s as well.

Events like this are critical to helping people understand what’s happening in the world of media. I talk with people involved with the media every day – reporters, editors, PR people, etc. – and the varying degrees of understanding/acceptance/enthusiasm are really interesting. Lots of people would like to pretend that nothing is changing at all, while others think that what’s happening is just silly. The reality is that change is happening and that there’s nothing silly or frivolous about it.
