Media literacy: from reading to writing and beyond
Richard MacManus:

I’m currently reading Lawrence Lessig’s new book, Free Culture, which is available as a free download under a Creative Commons license.

“The ability to read, analyze, evaluate and produce communication in a variety of media forms (television, print, radio, computers, etc.).”
