ReCivilization with Don Tapscott
This 5-part series, originally broadcast earlier in 2012, charts a path to the future enabled by the revolutions in communications, innovation and learning in this new, post-industrial, digital age. Celebrated Canadian author and thinker Don Tapscott guides us along this path with some of the most prominent minds in education, government, industry, the media, science, and health and medicine - along with the pioneers who are creating a new era of networked intelligence. The series also introduces Don's long-time collaborator, Anthony D. Williams.In the first installment of ReCivilization, Don looks at the media and how the industrial-age model of mass production is giving way to new, collaborative and citizen journalism, enabled by the web. Under the old model, newspapers and broadcasters delivered the news to passive listeners and readers; in this new, digital age, anyone can be a publisher or a broadcaster - and traditional media is being forced to adapt.
