I have ponder how, in just a few years, the Internet has evolved from a promise of change to a real force in citizen media. Not all the changes are easy to grasp and understand nor is every feature of the new media world is positive. Certainly not every voice adds positively to the conversation and some use their new found power to confuse and distract rather than evolve and inform.
I am struck, however, that some plainly refuse to understand that the new media exists. Witness:
Republican presidential nominee John McCain seems to misunderstand that today’s statement to Good Morning America is tomorrow’s viral YouTube clip. A search of McCain’s name on the popular video service returns a list of…
…mocking homemade videos
… poor media appearances
