Jay Rosen’s New Media Maxims | YouTube


@jayrosen_nyu's new media maxims, as he presented them to the World Bank, are…

  1. "Freedom of the press belongs to those who own one" – A.J. Liebling (…and now, because of new media, anyone can own one);
  2. Open systems don't work like closed systems ("Anyone can sign up");
  3. "Sources go direct" (Dave Winer);
  4. Audience atomization has been overcome (People are connected across to one another as effectively as they are connected-up to big institutions).
