ReCivilization is a new five part CBC radio show, by Don Tapscott one of the authors of Wikinomics and Macrowiknomics. The show is podcast and I’ve subscribed. I heard its first episode on the radio a few minutes ago starting about half-way through. It looks to be a pretty thoughtful show. There was an interview Sue Gardner (of the Wikimedia foundation) and Leo Laporte (of TWiT). Like CBC’s Spark the producers of ReCivilization are adding extended interviews to the website and blog.
Here’s the description:
In the first installment of ReCivilization, Don looks at the media and how the industrial-age model of mass production is giving way to new, collaborative and citizen journalism, enabled by the web. Under the old model, newspapers and broadcasters delivered the news to passive listeners and readers; in this new, digital age, anyone can be a publisher or a broadcaster – and traditional media is being forced to adapt. The episode also introduces Anthony D. Williams, Don’s longtime collaborator and a regular contributor to the series.
