Stirring up mainstream media and politics

Image

I’ve just had a piece published by the bimonthly online Stir magazine, talking about the failings of mainstream media and conventional politics and what we can all do about both.

I like the look of what they’re doing a great deal at Stir – there are tonnes of long-form articles I read all the way through to the end, something I find I do rarely given the tyranny of the internet coupled with my addled brain. The April 2012 issue has plenty more again.

My piece looked at alternatives to the mainstream, drawing inspiration both from the Transition Network and the activist media makers visionOntv. I do volunteer work for visionOntv and learn plenty of new stuff in return, a relationship I find very valuable.
