We live in the "Participation Age." -gw

The “Participation Age”
An ethos of collaboration and sharing.
Collaborative efforts of a group of ordinary individuals can lead to
perspectives and outcomes not possible for an individual, even a
recognized expert.
With the emergence of interactive media, readers of news are no
longer passive recipients of information, but participate in how that
information is distributed and ultimately interpreted.
