The New Media Revolution

With the dawning of the Internet, something happened within media. This was the beginning of technological socialization. Everything began with the desire for information; information about everything. This slowly blossomed into social media, which let’s face it is really information about people.

Now, the Internet as a whole is being taken one step further. It is going beyond merely socializing or information seeking and is becoming something more, much more. Users are driving content in ways never before seen.

This New Media Revolution can best be illustrated by the analogy of a third grade classroom. In third grade there was that old adage, “No question is a stupid question.” But it was third grade, so no one ever raised their hand.

Imagine sitting in that classroom for years and years on end. With the same confusing lessons being taught and those same questions never resolved. At some point, those third grade hands would start to go up. And that is precisely what is happening within media today.

Instead of waiting for the teacher to call on them, these users have begun answering their own questions, for one another. In doing so they themselves have crafted the new, youthful face of media.

This has lead to the transformation in not just one medium but all forms of media. Billboards are being digitally crafted for video games, television programing is being exclusively aired on the Internet, and there is still so much more to come.

“It’s all about on-demand content. Users are screaming for what they want, and other users are listening. All we have to do, as new media companies, is listen too,” said Chief Financial Officer and Co-Founder of Rico Media, Inc. Steven Gonzalez.

And Gonzalez is right. Companies like Digg and Revision3 are listening to users and giving them exactly what they ask for.

Digg is a new media news source that is the latest in online publications. Instead of some grey haired editor deciding what people should know, users “Digg” or vote for article either they submit or find on the Internet, and the articles with the leading votes go to the top for all to see. This set up makes users the sole drivers of content.

Revision3, on the other hand, is a new take on the classic television network. Instead of being aired on any given cable provider, subject to the edits of the Federal Communications Commission, these shows solely broadcast on the Internet. While there is some variation of these internet television websites, the main difference being who can post a show, all bend to the viewer’s whim. Watch what you want, when you want to watch it.

There is an added benefit to the new media revolution, and not just centered around content. Revision3’s Chief Executive Officer Jim Louderback has been quoted as saying the production costs for an internet television show is about 10 percent of what it costs to product a traditional network television show. The significance of this is more than it may appear. For the first time in decades, significant cost or substantial monetary investment is not a barrier to entry in this industry.

How Do You Instill Impeccable Integrity at Your Home

While some values can be specific to a culture or geography, integrity is a global, universal value, like love, compassion, peace, respect and responsibility. Integrity knows no boundaries in terms of location, age, gender, class, culture, race or religion. Indeed, integrity is a human value that, when it transcends the globe, serves to make people happier, more peaceful, more aware and more thoughtful.

Integrity can seem like an abstract value or concept, but it becomes pretty clear when you start evaluating kids’ habits. According to a recent CNN report, about 85 percent of kids say that they have cheated by the time they graduate from high school, whether it is copying a neighbor’s math test, plagiarizing from the Internet, a library book or another source, texting answers during tests and more. While younger kids are more guileless and innocent about cheating and may not even realize that it’s wrong right away, it is important to address this issue – with integrity – early on, so that children grown up understanding the value of honesty and integrity.

Integrity is truly integral to an individual’s system of ethics, values and morals. As a parent, caregiver or child educator seeking to teach and show the value of integrity, this process will involve both subjective and objective measures. You can discuss the concept as a whole, but you must also share specific, real-life examples of integrity in the community and world.

Consider the following tips for sharing the global value of integrity with the children in your life:

Be a role model. With kids, actions really do speak louder than words. If you are talking to your kids about integrity and its importance, but treating store clerks with impertinence or impatience, cheating your clients out of money or talking about your friends behind their backs, the message will get more than muddled. Let your kids see you greeting strangers with a smile, letting someone know if they gave you too much change for your purchase and avoiding the temptation to cut in line. Likewise, recognize other role models, from a celebrity to a neighbor to a teacher, who your kids can identify with.

Keep your promises. This is another big deal to kids – when you say that you are going to do something, do it. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Follow through, stay true to your word and keep your promises when it comes to parenting with integrity.

Talk. Talk about shows on TV that show people acting both with and without integrity. Talk about the latest local, national and international news stories. Talk about whether your children’s friends are cheating. Talk about your day. Be open to discussing whatever is on your children’s minds when it comes to the concept of integrity.

Have consequences. If you catch your child lying, cheating, stealing or otherwise acting without integrity, don’t let the action go unnoticed or unpunished. Make it clear what the consequences for this type of behavior are and then follow through.
