How participatory culture is reclaiming knowledge,
power and value systems from the inside out"
The abstract goes like this:
In the last decade, the Internet has served to enable the explosion of social networking. From MySpace, to YouTube and Wikipedia, participatory culture has transformed value systems, undermined notions of authority and power, while simultaneously creating new pathways for autonomous creativity and innovation. In this lecture, Paul Draper discusses these phenomena and suggests a higher learning imperative for what might be considered ‘music 2.0’, that is, for independent musical craft set in authentic contexts which continue to redefine 21st century artistry.
The lecture is available as a PDF transcription, a streaming Quicktime movie and vodcast at Radio IMERSD, or from the Apple iTunes Store.
