1.8  Hearing the new voices

The public space is becoming open; more people than ever can broadcast their ideas.

Activity 2  Who is heard?

Timing: Allow about 30 minutes

Having read the extract, reflect on whether you feel the public space has become ‘democratised’. Do we get to hear new voices? If so, what sorts of people do we hear from now that we didn’t previously? Perhaps the old structures reassert themselves? If so, how do they do this? Note your reflections on your blog.
