    Big Media

    Two authors discussed their books on the history of communications industries. Richard John, the author of Network Nation: Inventing American Telecommunications (2010), focused on the history of regulation. Tim Wu focuses on the history of media consolidation in his book The Master Switch: The Rise and Fall of Information Empires (Knopf, 2010). The author looks at how film, radio, television, and the telephone began open to experimentation only to be closed due to corporate control throughout each industry’s maturation. Mr. Wu questions if the Internet will follow this same path. The authors also responded to questions from members of the audience. Nicholas Lemann moderated. “Big Media: Pro and Con” was an event of the Columbia University Journalism School in New York City, sponsored in part by the Sevellon Brown Lecture Fund.
