“Do we need a new name for the modern media creators?” asks Dan Gillmor. “I’d like to find one but I confess I’m not having an easy time of it. ‘Creator’ has its own baggage. ‘Participant’ and ‘collaborator’ and ‘contributor’ don’t seem exactly right, either. If you have any ideas, I’d love to hear them.”
