User Generated Statistics

This came too late for last week’s presentation: via the Center for Media Research (here) via David Weinberger’s blog, results from Deloitte’s big survey, ‘State of the Media Democracy‘ (an awkward title).

40 percent of all survey respondents are making their own entertainment (editing movies, music and photos); 25 percent of Matures (61-75); 56 percent of all Millennials (18-24)
