Editorial Reviews

Cory Doctorow
"A master-class in media-literacy for the 21st century, operating on all scales from the tiniest details of navigating wiki software all the way up to sensible and smart suggestions for reforming law and policy to make the news better and fairer. Gillmor's a reporter's reporter for the information age, Mediactive made me want to stand up and salute."
Josh Stearns
"Dan Gillmor’s new book, Mediactive, is a handbook for engaged media citizenship."
