Detail on the digital from QUT

Distribution of movies, music and news is not what it used to be – but how industries were transformed and businesses started and stopped is way more intriguing than just assuming the internet did it

Which is what makes QUT media scholar Amanda Lotz’s new book, Media Disrupted so engaging – she takes a bunch of stuff we all experience and puts it in a way bigger context of creative destruction, disruption, adaption, invention.

And her work is part of what she writes. CMM paid $11 for the immediately delivered on-line edition of her book which case-studies, music, film, newspapers and television.

Which is good – but there’s an industry that could be included for a second edition, for-profit journal publishing.

Professor Lotz  talks about the book, tomorrow.
