In the three years since the publication of the first edition of “Data-Driven Print,” the media world has continued to change. A tangible example of this change occurred in late 2006, when Time magazine announced their Person of the Year – YOU! This event recognized the growth of user-generated content and the enthusiasm of younger media users in having information “my way.” The growth of the media forms are primarily electronic, including social networking sites, music downloads to cell phones, file sharing, and text messaging. This growth in “new media” has left the mainstream media businesses that provided content—such as news organizations, publishers, and record companies—to struggle with how to make money in the new era of individual control and user-created media.
