Abstract.

We shall focus here on collaborative production, the current shape of consumption practices in globalized modern societies, and networked new media. Shirky maintains that we are living in the middle of the largest increase in expressive capability in the history of the human race. Aguado points out that social systems and individuals incorporate in their interactions with media the very same selection criteria that media apply in their interaction with social systems/individuals. Hardt states that the definition of mass communication as technology focuses on the process of rationalization. pp. 93–101
