Participatory Culture ‘ Participatory culture is a term that is often used to talk about the apparent link between more accessible digital technologies, user-created content, and some kind of shift in the power relations between media industries and their consumers’ (Burgess and Green 2009, p.10)

New media = digital media? ‘ New media can also be thought of as digital media . Digital media are forms of media content that combine and integrate data, text, sound, and images of all kinds; are stored in digital formats; and are increasingly distributed through networks such as those based on broadband fibre-optic cables, satellites, and microwave transmission systems’ (Flew 2008, pp.2-3)

Electronically mediated communication (telephones, mobile phones, the internet) don’t study media in isolation, but study the social and cultural context of which the media is a part (Moores, 2005) time-space relations, interactions and sociabilities, meanings, and experiences

Technology as experience ‘ We don’t just use technology; we live with it. Much more deeply than ever before, we are aware that interacting with technology involves us emotionally, intellectually and sensually’ (McCarthy and Wright, 2004, p.ix)

Our technoid lives The attempt to understand and evaluate how we use technology as part of our mundane and extraordinary everyday lives is one of the most important ways that we become good technologists As critical technical practitioners we should think about and investigate the social significance of new technologies and explore and evaluate them by using them to make things – ‘learning by doing’ with the insight of theory and critical reflection

Social Media ‘ What's changed is that where once tools for media creation and publishing were controlled by an elite, digital technology is increasingly putting them into our hands. We can consume, interact with, create and share media more freely than ever - and this changes the power relationship between us and the mainstream media. We are entering the age of social media’. Anthony Lilley The Royal Television Society Huw Wheldon Memorial Lecture 2007

Arseblog ‘ Arseblog does not just provide a daily outlet for its author’s obsession. His daily posts provoke lively discussion often attracting hundreds of contributions and supply a round up of the news in the online and offline editions of all the British newspapers, as well as from France and Spain where many Arsenal players come from. The site links to and often quotes from the other fifteen decent blogs about Arsenal, as well as dipping into blogs run by fans of other clubs’ (Leadbeater 2008)

Arseblog and Web 2.0 ‘ Arseblog is a perfect example of how Web 2.0 is changing how people relate to information and media. The web provides many more niches for people to start a conversation on something about which they feel passionately. The old, industrial media, newspapers and television, do not have enough room to cater for all the minority interests of their readers and listeners’ (Leadbeater, 2008)
