Ask not what the Internet can do for you…

Earlier this month, Mashable asked readers to come up with concise definitions for the term “Social Media”:

I weighed in at No.1 with a remix of JFK’s famous challenge – which effortlessly embodied the hybridic/mash-up nature of New Media by taking someone else’s work, adding next to no original input to it and then enjoying all the resultant acclaim, column inches and financial rewards!*

Now whilst this isn’t an earth-shattering achievement, I found this little episode a memorable testament and affirmation of how New Media continues to value personality and creativity over factors such as technological know-how or popularity.

Therefore, be encouraged – if you’ve got something of value to say, SAY IT. The Internet is waiting 🙂

* Admittedly, in this case, there was none.
