Convergence Part I: This article examines the revolution of media convergence and how it is changing the relationships between media producers, media consumers, and the actual media content. The article also explores how all the technological advances being made today help fuel the progression of the convergence. The author, Henry Jenkins, discusses how convergence is an ongoing process that is sweeping our culture and that people better be prepared. He also states that convergence is literally restructuring American culture. “The Black Box Fallacy” is something Jenkins describes as his theory that sooner or later all media content will “flow through a single black box into our living rooms.” Instead of having a DVD player, a VCR, DVR, and multiple game stations you will only need one box to do all of the above. Convergence alters more than just technology; it also effects the relationship technology has with its industry and its audiences.
