Not everyone is happy with traditional forms of media. Concerns about independence and a decline in public debate have left many feeling that their voice will never be heard or considered. However, the internet has meant that ordinary people can be both producer and distributor of information and opinions through web-logs (blogs). However, the question still remains; are their voices really being heard? Having an online presence is one thing, but how do you attract attention to your blog when there are already 8.5 million bloggers out there? This program will inform students about the emergence of blogs, look at their associated negatives and positives and debate whether they really are an opportunity for the alternative voice or just uncensored rants.
