  • 5. What’s Happening Here?
    • Key aspects of convergence culture:
      • flow of content across media platforms, channels, contexts
      • flow of content between professionals and amateurs
      • active, productive audiences, users, produsers
      • loss of control over intellectual property
      • unexpected repurposing, new uses
        • new commercial opportunities?
        • more conflicts between creative industries and creative users?
    • Key cultural shifts:
      • participatory culture – all users may be active as content creators
      • collective intelligence – widespread sharing and collaboration

      • more knowledge for individuals and communities
      • fundamental changes to traditional industry / audience relationships
