After each MEPEACE.org Chat Workshop (a new kind of event taking place every second Sunday in MEPEACE.org Chat), we (the MEPEACE Dialogue Team, that is Cigdem Yilmazer, Jessica de Souza and myself) open a dedicated 'after-event discussion', in order to give the workshop participants and other interested members the chance to elaborate on their points raised during the workshop, share new ideas on the respective topic with others, and discuss with others about the topic.
Information about our event which successfully took place on 17 January can be found here:
The summary /report of the event (in PDF format) is attached as well, so please have a look.
The leading questions were:
Why do we choose platforms such as MEPEACE except for getting informed which was the traditional media's service we recently abandoned?
How does the wider public regard new media? Have we already become part of the 'mainstream media'?
During the 90 minutes of live discussion, the ten participants plus moderators already addressed these questions to a large extent. However, feel free to add anything here. But please stick to the topic:
New era in media: Information, interaction or both - What do we really need?
The Dialogue Team won't interfere in this discussion, however, take into account that 'normal' moderation (as in every other discussion) applies - so please observe the MEPEACE.org Guidelines.
This discussion will be open for replies and comments until Saturday, 30 January
, the day before the next MEPEACE.org Chat, on Sunday, 31 January. There will therefore only be one 'open' after-event discussion at one time.
