Dan Gillmor the author of “We the Media” has brought
us insights relating to technology and media. It would
be interesting to see how Wiki media will evolve in
the future, as it seems to be the largest online
reference now. At the same time, Google is trying to
challenge to becoming the largest information
organizer in the high tech industry. There is going to
be information war in the Internet.

At some point, people have all the freedom to voice
their opinions either through blogs or online forums
alike. Many well known online news media companies
such as CNN, MSNBC, etc have adapted this trend. As
the information channels quickly reach audience, it
could greatly affect the way people make decision
through their daily life. For example, people make
decision on what they eat, shop, or drive based on the
opinions or reviews they could possibility find
online. People even become like or dislike on certain
things based on the information and opinions gathered
from the Internet.

People enjoy freedom of speech, however not every
country gives that kind of freedom. Likewise, the
search giant Google or media giant CNN can only report
up to a level about the news or information in China.
The news information are getting to audiences at a
much faster rate, almost instantly as it is happening.
People subscribe to web services such as syndication
feed which updates the news headlines on regular
basis. News media sometimes tend to draw audiences
attentions by exaggerating the effect of the events,
hence the media can get wider audience on the issue.

Savvy bloggers and Internet users need to learn what
is the correct information from rumors. As the
information become more readily available to
audiences, people need to learn as quickly as email
filters to determine what information are important to
them.
