EVALUATION: How did you use new media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages?

In addition to what I have said, it is important to note that these new media technologies have made me a prosumer: in the age of WEB 2.0, video sharing websites like YOUTUBE and VIMEO allow the consumers to create their own content with incredible ease, which is especially easy to do so with affordable high definition video recording equipment like I show in this video. WEB 2.0 is an important term to take into consideration, expressing the vast advances that have been made in the use and content of the internet. Although it is a relatively old term, in sums up the changes that have made everything I have done with this blog possible: social media, video sharing, web applications, wikis, blogs etc. In all, this has pushed the large swathes of the internet community towards a prosumer mind set, inspired by the success of fellow users who may host successful blogs or popular Youtube content. This term applies to the work I have done here, where I have been inspired by the success and entertaining qualities of the western feature films and online short films I have seen, using affordable and accessible technology to produce my own content as a consumer.
