OneWebDay NYC Educational Workshop - Room 1314: Power to the User
Saturday Sep 20 2008 - all times pm EST (UTC-4)
2:00 - 2:30 TheLampNYC.org: Media Literacy -- Breaking Ads with Digital Media
We're way past the age of only receiving one-way, top-down, corporate media messages. Today digital media and the Internet allow us talk back, interrogate, and re-create corporate-produced persuasive messages. In this session you'll see commercials broken down to their persuasive essence, then re-created to reveal the truths left out. How are digital media and the web used to do it? Why would we want to do it? Is it legal? Find out here.
2:40 - 3:10 Citizen Journalism
Mike Meyers of NowPublic.com will teach you how to get started as a citizen journalist.
