James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

The New Face of Media-thinking.

Posted on | June 26, 2010 | 1 Comment

TEDxDubai did many things and one of the most important things was give the UAE permission to push its media bar in a totally different direction.

Leo Laporte made a wonderful daring presentation to TEDxDubai.

The media is changing but are we ready?

Do we believe the media environment is really changing?

Call our media environment converging, diverging, clouding,WEB2.0 but the reality is a whole new playing field is before us like it or not.

The problem is we media educators need to put our past on the shelf and go boldly where nobody has gone before!

The problem is it is easier said than done.

Leo Laporte spoke at TEDxDubai 2009 and offered an invitation to UAE media educators and students, all of us really, to go boldly into the media environment where we have never gone before.

Leo Laporte’s invitation, dare, to embrace the new media environment.

What will you do?

    Interesting comments — I do believe the media environment is rapidly changing as well — I am not as sure as to the media environment in Dubai and the UAE! I will be quite excited to be immersed in the media of that culture when I arrive. I should be in country by August 21st and look forward to meeting you, James.
