Twitterers ponder the new News Media-scape

Lee Rainie’s speech at the Integrated Media Association meeting was a hit on Twitter. Here are some quotes:

@EliIngraham: Lee Rainie: “Link love” is currency of trust and goodwill; transparency; aggregate the best related work; seek forgiveness if wrong. #ima09

@lbraun2000: Lee Rainie: public broadcasting (media) should partner with local libraries #ima09

@bryanmoffet: Lee Rainie: disengaged youth are confident important news will find them, via their network #IMA09

@beyondbroadcast: Lee: “Behold Homo Connectus”–different sense of space, time, access to info, co-presence, social networks, play, efficacy, time use #ima09
