The Peoples Media Manifesto

'We live in a world with massive media conglomerates like News International and AOL Time Warner telling us everything we know about the world outside our own immediate social relations. Sites like Facebook and YouTube do exist, offering hope in the form of distributed media sharing networks. But both are corporately owned and may, someday, if they do not already, exercise editorial control over the content on their sites, just as Google Groups allegedly deletes USENET posts from their archive on request from governments, the media, and military conglomerates. What is needed is a media network that is completely anti-corporate: anti-organisation, bottom up and distributed. This is the People's Media manifesto.'
