Jarvis/Copyfight on The Future of Digital Media

Ernest Miller’s interview of Jeff Jarvis at Copyfight (first in a series, it appears) is an instant classic
I like it most because it is extensive enough to connect up a series of
issues that are obviously related but which are often discussed in
isolation: digital media (often discussed just as music and movies);
the movement from consumers to creators; the effect of these changes on
journalism, politics, advertising, and ourselves; and what those in
traditional industries can in turn teach the blogger and other citizen
creators.  As a bonus, from the academic corner: without trying
too hard, he answers the question: “so what is semiotic democracy
anyway?”  Jarvis’s responses, woven together, are a synthetic (in
the best sense), compelling look into our near-future together.
