Dan Gillmor set his sights high
Dan Gillmorâ€™s book entitled Mediactive was created to help society, become more responsible users of media. Itâ€™s not only enough that you function as a â€˜consumer and creatorâ€™. You also need to be well-informed about the things that you involve yourself with, especially when it concerns the media.
Just because hundreds of thousands of Twitter messages are sent in relation to X Factor, it does not follow that itâ€™s any good. Mediactive was created to help redeem both journalism and democracy. Loft targets, and regardless of if the book achieves what it set out to, it is certainly a very thought-provoking read. Â Dan Gillmor has also managed to include the necessary tools and techniques to help anyone get through this age of â€˜information confusionâ€™. We would suggest this is a book worth checking out.
