01/23/2008 Tension: Music and the digitization of music; some people choose to get the music without paying for it, so this is a tension. The similar interest lies in wanting to spread music.

Nine sites of tensions/negotiations between producers and consumers 1) Revising audience measurement —the industry wants to broadcast ads, and the audience wishing to avoid ads. is a new way of online measurement since audiences are consuming in new ways. 2) Regulating media content —TiVo is a way that you regulate your viewing (I want to watch this and not this). TiVo comes and says, “Hey, you like to watch sports, so here’s this.” You can regulate your viewing via content or pattern. We, as audiences, can regulate our viewing and viewing patterns in order to give ourselves control. The industry is trying to relate our viewing in other ways of trying to decide our viewing. We wanted to come up with a system ourselves. Ex.

This is dominated by the top-down model. There is a new technological term: prosumer. Producer/consumer—I didn’t like the ending of a movie I saw, so I re-edited the ending and posted it on YouTube.
