Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Media Matters and that is why all citizens should understand and participate in shaping media policy. Too few in charge of too much of anything that impacts so many is a recipe for corruption, manipulation and will create a huge imbalance in power and wealth. 

Media Matters and with so many millions building this up why are we not charging for our part of the build up or at least protecting or our own interest in what we have all created together and paying more careful attention to policy?

 

The ones that have original ideas should be richly rewarded by those that benefit from those ideas but so should the people, citizens or customers that got behind them and turned their ideas into house hold names because we all embraced their creations.

 

The open, neutral internet that created this and our privacy should not be under constant threat of loss by the very companies and governments all these efforts, much less our time, often our tax dollars and through our support we all  helped to create.

They flipped the old model."

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This is why media and media policy matters to all of us. Don't just use media. Get to understand  as much as possible about it. This info-graph also supports the idea that the internet as it has been designed as an open, neutral communication system is an amazingly successful communication system.

 

 The internet and the Web should be protected as it is and not be allowed to degrade into just a commercial and political tool and source of control by a wealthy few. This is why many push teaching code as a new language and everyone should be taught to create content in these post-modern times.
