About the Speech:
“Content is King” but what constitutes content has shifted considerably in the last decade. This far-reaching talk offered a snapshot of a culture-in-process, a media ecology which is still taking shape, where audiences play an ever more active role in interpreting, creating, circulating and remixing media content. In this context, Professor Jenkins looked at the role that publics play in shaping the content they consume and how it could transform existing models of viral media and web 2.0.
