The Second Media Age

The exam on Friday is so complicated. Maybe blogging a bit of it will help. I found these notes in the school webdrive:
  • This era of user-generated content and the applications that facilitate it (like Facebook, Wikipedia, YouTube, blogging) has been dubbed Web 2.0. 
  • Web 1.0 is generally defined as the era in which the dominant activity was not producing your own content, but surfing for content produced by others. 
  • Web 2.0 also relates to the role of convergence in freeing the internet and internet applications from the physical space of a computer terminal.
