Open MIC believes in the power of community to help address the challenges of 21st century media. We’re all consumers of media, we all have opinions about media and – these days, thanks to technology – most of us are also capable of creating media.
Open MIC Discussion Boards  are designed to encourage and enable registered users of this site to delve into some of the issues critical to the future of democracy and the media business. We’re launching with a limited number of subjects, but we can and will expand as Open MIC – and the dialogue on open media – continues to grow.
The Open MIC Blog  involves us talking to you. It’s our way of putting ideas on the table, with registered Open MIC users encouraged to comment.
Becoming a registered Open MIC user is easy  – all that’s required is your email address. All we ask is that on your forum posts and in tour comments, you aim to keep the discussion civil and constructive. Posts are subject to our posting guidelines.
