My intention in Convergent Media and Privacy had not been to generate more fear and panic over the changing conditions of personal privacy. On the contrary, I have wanted to critically reflect on these broader transformations in media industries and media consumption practices, and contribute to the debate around the consequences and meanings of these changes. My argument has been that the position of personal information is only one dimension, albeit a fundamentally important one, of these multi-directional social, cultural, economic and technological shifts, and which has become centrally interwoven through our unfolding mediascapes.
