Blogger, teacher, former NPR ombudsman, former managing editor of CBC Radio News Geoff Dvorkin was recently preparing some notes for a media class he is teaching at the University of Toronto and came up with his definition of the differences between old and new media:
- Defined by scarcity.
- Production defined by the tools.
- Production only happens in buildings.
- Expertise has value because it is limited.
- Social relations inside the organizations are highly defined.
- defined by abundance
- post-industrial and non-material.
- Production is defined by the product.
- Production is collaborative, not hierarchical.
- Expertise is based in diversity.
- Social relations are in constant flux.
