Garrett Johnson March 29, 2010 Electronic Media Electronic media in 30 years Humanity has come to an intriguing crossroads. Our technology is evolving faster than ever and yet the human experience hasn’t changed much since the golden age of Rome. We stand on the verge of a collision between these two worlds as our technology becomes increasingly integrated with the innate methods humans use to interact with the world. It’s a trend of “engaging the primal” (Lovison, J). There is a new trend that may be worth noting: the transformation of the net from websites to dynamic (blog type) websites, to multi-media capable social interaction points. Facebook, Linkedin, hi5 and other such services with the backup of YouTube and Google Video are definitely on the upswing, and they will become much more important than they are today. Their ease of use , low cost to the user, and multimedia capability will likely make them a preferred channel for citizen reporting, for the publishing of individually or collaboratively produced content. But even here, the providers would be well advised to curb their dreams of commercialization of the service (Good, R). Media convergence and technological advancement have greatly changed all forms of multimedia. There really is no mass medium today that has remained unchanged since its origin.
