Just Do It, jump in and start experimenting

new media is largely free. So why teach it in school as if it were a scary theory? Why encourage people to be afraid? Just do it. Build your own platform. Appear in the places that seem productive or interesting or challenging or fun. Experiment quietly, figure out what works, do it more. No need to be a dilettante, and certainly you shouldn’t spread yourself too thin or quit at the first sign of failure… but… quit waiting for the right answer.

By the time we tell you the right answer, it’ll be too late.

Just Do It. New media is full of rich opportunities to express your story, share your voice and engage your audience. Figuring it all out is part of the process. You won’t figure out what works without actually doing it.

Jump In. Keep paddling. It will all work out fine.
