Henry Jenkins. Convergence Culture. Chapter 1. Spoiling Survivor. The Anatomy of a Knowledge Community
Here are 3 points I’ve read “between the lines” while reading Chapter 1: 1. In information age information becomes the biggest power. 2. In information age everyone can become a celebrity (ChillOne, Wezzie, Dan Bollinger are celebrities in their circle). 3.
Show’s producers can be interested in “spoilers” as this can attract
viewers and raise the show’s popularity (I don't mean that Survivor's
producers ARE interested, but they can...)
Possible questions: 1. What are the peculiarities of information society? 2. What at last will prevail in information society, so-called “collective intelligence” or the expert paradigm? Why? 3. If you were producers of the “Survivor”, how would you percept the fact of “spoiling” and what would you do with that?
