HOW CAN I BE A GLOBAL CITIZEN WHILE PRESERVING MY IDENTITY?
Medieval Media conferences aim to diffuse a radical-critic-constructive approach towards new technologies, based on a democratic way of describing this so called Digital Era.
The adjective medieval wants to underline the current condition of Internet and new media development, stuck in a halfway point between the asymmetrical communication and the shared one.
The Net organization is nowadays set as a Medieval hierarchy, a feudal system whose big corporations, companies and holding-control leaders can marginalize everything but their communication and data-circulation modalities. Every alternative is subordinated. That means we all are in a way forced to be stuck in a conservative approach that can be overcome easily using the knowledge and the cultural tools we have.
Despite their huge influence, those big holdings couldn't stop the development of technologies. The inevitable growing of new ideas on the spreading information process is going towards the increasing use of technological instruments that allow everyone to communicate in an ethic and democratic way.
Diametrically opposed to a techno-enthusiastic vision so typical in these days, Medieval Media wants to reflect and make people think about all the alternatives made possible by a critic and conscious use of new technologies.
