The Changing Face of Media

The field of news, journalism and access to media information is in a major transformation. We are, slowly but surely, evolving into a everyone-a-publisher world, one that allows people around the world to engage freely and powerfully with information to advance their own lives and society. Citizens are coming into the professional field, changing the composition of newsrooms to change what is reported and how. We are looking at a different way of understanding citizenship--one where efficient access to quality knowledge, freedom of press and expression and the right to privacy and security of information-- become key to understanding who is or isn't a 'knowledge' citizen. 

How are we mapping this change in the way citizens consume and share news? And what ultimately is born of this awareness-creation process?  What steps do we need to take to ensure such a world comes to pass and who are going to be the stakeholders of this process? And most importantly, how is the role of the citizen, within considerable limits of privacy, security and inclusivity, going to evolve in this information economy?
