“Transmedia is a word for old people”

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 29, 11:40 PM

Interestingly, not every young person lives the way the author's friend's daughter suggested. And not every old person needs a word to describe this practice.

Sadim M.R.'s curator insight, March 31, 3:22 AM

"My friend’s daughter explained that young people don’t need a word to describe transmedia because this is how they live every day. The narrative of their own lives unfolds across different social media platforms and they consciously create identities for themselves depending on where, what, how and with whom they share information."

Justin Nalepa's curator insight, March 31, 11:01 AM

Love the comment posted below the article: "The word represents an attack on the institutional tendency to retain control and ownership of cultural vitality... I think your friend's daughter is absolutely right and only slightly wrong because transmedia is another word for power, and sharing control of culture is not the primary objective of the folks who are presently in control of the definition of transmedia."

WTF is Transmedia? (2013)

Andrea Phillips:  "It's become fashionable to hate the word 'transmedia' in some circles. The T-word has been very good to me. It's netted me any number of speaking engagements and website hits and sold me a book, among other things, so I feel a certain loyalty to it. I don't think I'd be enjoying the same degree of professional success if I hadn't very consciously embraced That Word back in 2010 or so."

Jim Stewartson:  "Friends, it’s time to get serious. The ongoing debate between (intelligent, well-meaning) people about what “transmedia” means and even whether defining the word matters at all, is killing our common cause."

The word "transmedia" was hardly to be heard at MIPTV. Does this mean it's dead, or rather fully integrated in TV production?

A couple of interesting posts today on the relevance of the term "transmedia".  The first is this one from Simon Staffans, the second is by Andrea Phillips and called WTF Transmedia?  Both are worth the read.

Vanessa Camilleri's curator insight, May 8, 2013 4:21 AM

worth reading! I think we have to avoid building up too much hype on the word transmedia and focus more on what it can actually do and where it can actually lead us.
