Abstract<br />PurposeTo identify the principal components of an emerging global digital culture <br />Hypothesis“First, the realization that all aspects of everyday life in highly industrialized modern societies are to some extent influenced by, and implicated in computerization.”“A second assumption takes into consideration contemporary social changes accelerated by globalization, post-nationalism and individualization.”<br /> (Mark Deuze)<br />
Abstract<br />Methods<br /> A case-based approach<br />Discussion<br />whether or not the components of<br /> digital culture can be considered ‘new’<br />
What is Digital Culture?<br />Participation<br />Remediation<br />Bricolage<br />
Digital Culture<br />Principal components<br />Online Journalism, Indymedia and Blogs<br /> - (online) journalism, blogging and open publishing—all of which are combined in the structures, values and practices of Indymedia.<br />
Participation<br />Active agents in the process of meaning-making (we become participants<br />Contemporary understanding of participation-‘hypersociability’<br />With the emergence of independent centers<br />A new form of journalism-“we media”<br />Has a political dimension<br />Has roots in “DIY” CULTURE<br />In realms of economy<br />Participation- Examples<br />Star Wars<br />Reality TV show Survivor<br />News Crop announcement<br />“We media”<br />Webblogging<br />SNSs<br />Wikis<br />Social Tagging<br />
Remediation<br />Distantiation VS Remediation<br />We adopt but at the same time modify, manipulate, and thus reform consensual ways of understanding reality (we engage in remediation)<br />Remediation-Example<br />Weblogg<br />Twitter (micro blogging) <br />Journalism<br />
Bricolage<br />we reflexively assemble our own particular versions of such reality (we are bricoleurs).<br />incorporates like borrowing, hybridity, mixture and plagiarism <br />evident link our way online<br />Critical thinking<br />“Left” from “Right” and “Progressive” from “Conseevative”<br />“second-hand truth”---Baudrillard<br />Provide a bottom-up platform for individual voice<br />Bricolage-Example<br />SDKs<br />Wiki<br />Netiquette<br />Indymedia web sites<br />Rmixing<br />
Critical thinking<br />What is the future for<br />Digtal culture?<br />What is <br />our end goal? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBVZ4C6VAVQ<br />
