Time Will Tell // Legacy Media Vs Digital Media

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.

Legacy Media Vs Digital Media


A product

A conversation


Within a certain time period.

All the time, in real time.


Created by individuals.

Created by collaboration and collective intelligence.

User empowerment:

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.”

The trajectories within media have altered. Whilst we are adjusting to this new paradigm, should we also consider the possibilities of future digital inventions?
