One Provocative Future of Media

In response to Open Source Journalism and Public Framing of Issues, my friend Halim sent me to a "fascinating 'future history' scenario of media evolution." Check it out. I wrote to its creator, Evan Emerson, complimenting him on his brilliant creation and -- since it is rich with provocative ambiguity -- wondering where his thinking takes him on how he'd like to see the future of media unfold. Perhaps he will show up here and share his thoughts...

Readers' Comments

Dear Tom,
Well of course I am not your friend, Halim, but I am going to jump in here.

I have just caught up with the new blog idea in your ongoing efforts to reach more voices for co-intelligence discussions. Congratulations!

I am already convinced that blogging is an important way to reach a wider audience. Several friends have started blogs just recently, including one fellow in the UK and another in upstate NY. Both are fascinating and very different, although both have a political orientation. I have not made that move yet, but I am thinking about it. Two other friends (in TX and OR) have popular programs on independent radio. All of this INDEPENDENT media is important for those of us who have sweorn off all mainstream media.

I hope my post was not too far off topic!
