In this report I filed for Rocketboom, I interview JD Lasica about his new book, Darknet.
Darknet: Hollywood's War Against the Digital Generation is a new book that offers first-person accounts of how the personal media revolution will impact movies, music, computing, television and games. Release date: May 2005.Mentioned in the interview: Negativland, The Forbidden Single.
An audio archive of the talk he gave prior to our interview is available here.
"We see an opportunity to help kick-start the grassroots media revolution," said J.D. Lasica, CEO of recently launched Ourmedia, which hosts video for free. "We're still at an early stage of the multimedia-rich Web. The Web is not going to be Web logs and text; it's going to be people posting video and podcasting and taking part in the citizens' media that's just starting to explode."Leading the personal media revolution.
