Book Review: We the Media
reviewed by Jonas Micah

This month I had the privilege of seeing a copy of We the Media by Dan Gillmor slide across my desk. This book takes a captivating look at the changing face of modern-day media, and examines the cultural trends which are bringing about such changes.

Technology in the form of cell phones, digital cameras and weblogs are making the tides turn, and plummeting costs are making them turn even further.

This book was a true delight to read. It paints a vivid picture of the emerging revolution taking place in the media. A revolution which is shifting power, little by little, from the hands of the big money conglomerates to those of the average, techno-savvy citizen. Times are changing in a big way, and this book makes an excellent stab at chronicling the trends and causes behind it. It kept me captivated from beginning to end, and it will you, too.

I'd recommend this book to just about anyone. But especially to those interested in grassroots media, putting power into the hands of the people, and non-violent revolution.
