Draft Chapters of Dan Gillmor’s “Mediactive”

“Mediactive”, as Xeni shares on Boing Boing, sounds very much like a book I can get behind. I applaud Dan for, knowingly or not, taking a page from the unbook model. He’s specifically looking for feedback on these chapters as he goes into what sounds like final edits.

The goal of the book is to improve media literacy and seems informed by the right pressures, that we are increasingly awash in all kinds of rich media. I find this to be an unsung cause for balanced copyright, that as we use remix to comprehend our world and communicate with others, we need to be able to do so without fearing of tripping infringement claims.
