But when it come to the internet, its a different story…
Memes. I just made a meme. I am participating in content creation, about content. Which brings me to (beautiful literal segue) participation culture and empowerment of audiences. In making this meme, not only have I produced content but have actually actively participated in responding to the original content. In its creation I have not only drawn on the topic of this weeks lecture (content) in the copy but also drawn on the comical nature of Sean Bean’s face from the iconic Lord of the Rings (also content). This meme is a representation of my response as an active member of the audience – otherwise known as a produser. The remediation itself embodies participatory culture, as does the subject itself. Convergent Media Practices is a reflection of participatory culture and the empowerment of audiences.
For now, signing off,
