"Global, Social, Ubiquitous and Cheap"

Media has changed. We all know this and have read through the statistics on usage, consumer habits and, of course, the decline of the print world. The old world models are over. The control is in the hands of the consumer and the conversation is totally uncontrolled.

To most people in the digital world, these ideas aren't new. But this TED talk, featuring new media guru Clay Shriky, is. What I love about the talk is that it provides context on how technology has changed the way media works and showcases case studies on the massive changes in our global culture.

Watch this talk as soon as you can and let the conversations begin.
