Example text

Unlike the music industry, which largely ignored the Internet, newspapers have been exploring a range of models to deal with the change. As Shirky (2009) puts it, The problem newspapers face isn’t that they didn’t see the internet coming. They not only saw it miles off, they figured out early on that they needed a plan to deal with it, and during the early 90s they came up with not just one plan but several. Most other industries haven’t worked through the range of models that newspapers have already attempted and discarded.

For instance, here I am (Weller and Dalziel 2009) making reference to the long tail: [A] distributed model of learning design production is the best way to attack the long tail (Anderson 2006) of possible learner interests. If a user wants to find small courses to formally accredit their understanding of highland knitting patterns, history of Sydney in the 1960s or anthropology amongst football fans, then most current formal providers will not meet their requirements, but a sufficiently distributed pool of user generated designs might.

The digitisation of content then causes a change in this, which is fundamental to the industry, and like some of the other changes, it causes people to question some assumptions they didn’t even know they had. One of these is about the issue of identity. For my generation you partly constructed your identity around what you owned – your bookshelf, record collection and DVD archive were important aspects of who you were (as anyone who has read Nick Hornby’s High Fidelity will appreciate). But for the digital generation this strong link with ownership has been broken.
