Overview

Mainstream media, often known simply as MSM, have not yet disappeared in a digital takeover of the media landscape. But the long-dominant MSM—television, radio, newspapers,magazines, and books—have had to respond to emergent digital media. Newspapers have interactive Web sites; television broadcasts over the Internet; books are published in both electronic and print editions. In Designing Media, design guru Bill Moggridge examines connections and conflicts between old and new media, describing how the MSM have changed and how new patterns of media consumption are emerging. The book features interviews with thirty-seven significant figures in both traditional and new forms of mass communication; interviewees range from the publisher of the New York Times to the founder of Twitter. We learn about innovations in media that rely on contributions from a crowd (or a community), as told by Wikipedia's Jimmy Wales and Craigslist's Craig Newmark; how the band OK Go built a following using YouTube; how real-time connections between dispatchers and couriers inspiredTwitter; how a BusinessWeek blog became a quarterly printed supplement to the magazine; and how e-readers have evolved from Rocket eBook to QUE. Ira Glass compares the intimacy of radio to that of the Internet; the producer of PBS's Frontline supports the program's investigative journalism by putting documentation of its findings online; and the developers of Google's Trendalyzer software describe its beginnings as animations that accompanied lectures about social and economic development in rural Africa. At the end of each chapter, Moggridge comments on the implications for designing media. Designing Media is illustrated with hundreds of images, with color throughout. ADVD accompanying the book includes excerpts from all of the interviews, and the material can be browsed at www.designing-media.com.www.designing-media.comInterviews with [updated by Moggridge2/1]]Chris Anderson, Rich Archuleta, Blixa Bargeld, Colin Callender, Fred Deakin, Martin Eberhard,David Fanning, Jane Friedman, Mark Gerzon, Ira Glass, Nat Hunter, Chad Hurley, Joel Hyatt, AlexJuhasz, Jorge Just, Alex MacLean, Bob Mason, Roger McNamee, Jeremy Merle, Craig Newmark, BruceNussbaum, Alice Rawsthorn, Anna Rosling Rönnlund, Hans Rosling, Ola Rosling, Paul Saffo, JesseScanlon, DJ Spooky, Neil Stevenson, Arthur Sulzberger Jr., Shinichi Takemura, James Truman, JimmyWales, Tim Westergren, Ev Williams, Erin Zhu, Mark Zuckerberg

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Under Moggridge's watch, Designing Media becomes more than a set of interviews.

By the final comments in the last interview, the thrust of its underlying thesis that 'the printed word will not disappear' simply serves as a valedictory to a thesis that the reader has already discovered for themselves. Moggridge assures us that, 'while digital media is directly responsible for falling revenues in music, film and the printed word, individuals and companies will find ways to carve niches in the new digital domain.'" Core 77

"We often hear that mainstream media like television and print are dead. Or perhaps undead — thoughtless, empty shells of human culture and creativity that will soon be vanquished by the heroism of digital technologies. But one need not look far to see that such claims are simply wrong. People still watch TV, go to bookstores, buy CDs, and so on. In Designing Media,Bill Moggridge and his interviewees show us that something more subtle is happening: pre- and post-digital media are combining in weird and complex ways — neither one winning or losing, but each changing the other. Like this book, the future of media is not a vanquishing of monsters but a series of conversations between forms." Ian Bogost, Georgia Institute of Technology, coauthor of Newsgames: Journalism at Play
