Intellectual Autobiography Project
11:01 PM
One of the things I am looking for in graduate study is new ideas. I was thrilled by Alan Fletcher’s book ‘Looking Sideways’ as I felt it somehow describes my inner world. ‘Brilliant ideas like truffles are rare and only possible given special conditions’ (Alan Fletcher, Looking Sideways, 73). In my media career I hope to find some new approach, invent something new in established ‘old’ media. That is the question that excites me – finding new, making ‘invention’. Media has so much hidden things which need to be revealed. I hope I will reveal some of them.

By ‘old’ and ‘new’ media I mean media which used to be and media which is now in the era of convergence technologies. Henry Jenkins, one of America’s most respected analysts, describes old media as follow - “Each media had its own distinctive functions and markets, and each was regulated under different regimes, depending on whether its character was centralized or decentralized, marked by scarcity or plentitude, dominated by news and entertainment, and owned by governmental or private interests” (Henry Jenkins, Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide, 10). All of that does not work now, when all different means of media merge. So, telling that I want to create something new I mean revealing the impact of convergence on society and taking it into consideration while creating new programs on TV or radio. I hope that one of the conditions which will help me to do this will be my graduate study, my professors, my fellow students, new experience in general.
