- The global media and entertainment sector is experiencing a rapid period of transformation. The traditional broadcasting and publishing model of distributing professionally produced content to mass audiences is changing. No longer reliant on the narrow decisions of traditional gatekeepers—programmers, editors and advertisers—next generation Internet users are firmly in the driver’s seat. This sophisticated demographic demand a media lifestyle that is personal, participatory and pull-driven. The unfolding Internet-based media space provides an ever expanding choice of audio/visual content, applications and rich user experiences. The Web is now the platform connecting users to an endless variety of social, media, financial and entertainment services. This plethora of choice is being accelerated by a range of Web innovations that empower users to create, collaborate and share media in profoundly new ways. Groupware such as online social networking applications, blogs (Web-logs) and wikis (group-edited Web pages) have attracted millions of passionate users leading to the emergence of novel services that take advantage of network-enabled collaboration. These services pose a number of challenges and opportunities for Smart Internet Technology CRC stakeholders. [Introduction]
