Electronic media.

In a minimum of two pages respond to the following questions:

1.   How has electronic media (the internet especially and self-produced DVD’s) reversed some of this dominant cultural hegemony generated by Hollywood movies by democratizing access to global audiences?

2.   What are some of your favorite illustrative examples of other-than-mainstream groups or individuals who have found their voices and audiences on the internet?

3.   A currently popular one is the person to person investment web-site to help eradicate global poverty – http://www.kiva.org/ .  What is your opinion about efforts like this by NGO’s [Non-Government Organizations]? Do you think this one will make any difference?
