What is 'we media'? It's about new technologies allowing anyone to contribute to the information cycle IN REAL TIME without technical skills It's about sharing connections and knowledge For examples, using blogs, wikis, online discussion groups and other new media

Why a Video Incubator? In the world, not many people have the gift of 'good writing'. But everyone can tell a story, using their own words There are languages barriers, for many people writing in English is a challenge, but when they write in their own language, the impact of their message is limited (khmer? Thai? vietnamese? how many people in the world understand that?)

Media Studies In Universities today, we teach new media. Our students learn how to use a camera, the software, how to cut a story and all the technicalities. But nobody teaches how the correct use of new media can help us become more knowledgeable about our world, and how to tell a difficult story, and how to make a difference without hurting anyone
