What we now refer to as ‘legacy media‘ was once the only way we could access any form of news.
Legacy media is created within a certain time period. Either on TV, the radio or by newspaper delivery, we wait to hear latest world news, weather, economy status and current affairs.
Due to the invention of capture devices and the internet, distributed journalism has evolved. Gone are the days of pre-packaged information, produced from a centralised network
“News That’s Fit to Print” is not coming back.
My remediation simply explores many differences between legacy and digital media.
Legacy Media Vs Digital Media
Within a certain time period.
All the time, in real time.
Created by individuals.
Created by collaboration and collective intelligence.
Hierarchy of producers, with the content passed through a gatekeeper.
Anyone can produce, reproduce or remix content, without a gatekeeper.
As noted by Gustavo, collective intelligence is a “process by which a group/network generates options and decides on course of action.”
