Another area that has been disrupted is music. Blogging has evolved into a very expressive form of writing, and clearly exploits the immediacy of social interaction that was unknown before social media.

There is also a belief that, just as the music industry of the late 1970s was stagnating, so the education system of the early 21st Century is in need of a reboot.

Image by Martin42 on Wikimedia Commons When I read Being Digital for the first time, way back in 1997, it slowly dawned on me that everything was about to change. Very soon thereafter, social networks and then social media began to arrive.
