Title

User-centred media - but who is the user?

Abstract

A lot has been said and written on the changes brought about by the internet compared to pre-internet times, much less on what remains or is likely to remain unchanged. There is a lot to learn from how content has traditionally reached the consumer moving across myriads of value chains. A combination of factors (tradition, business, law etc.) tends to preserve a role for those value chains. Instead of seeking abolition of those roles it may be worth exploring how they can be mapped to a digital world and what benefits such a mapping may bring.
