Sample text

The absence of formal economies does not mean that there is no economy at all; it just means that the mechanisms of exchange lie outside the formal. Moreover, and perhaps more importantly for the analysis of media systems, the informal needs to be distinguished from the criminal. As Centeno and 14 Amateur media Portes explain,31 the informal and criminal spheres are connected through relationships involving cheap labour, demand for illicit goods, and so on; but they should not be conflated. Grey markets are not black markets.

A central and mostly valid part of the pro-am analysis is that UGC is not created primarily for sale or other forms of monetisation. By contrast, the informal economy is all about money or at least about the pursuit of economic goals. Especially in developed economies, the informal sector is notable for heavy reliance on cash as a way of avoiding state control. Even where various forms of barter are involved (both in pre-monetary economies and in modern forms of informality such as internships) there is a substantial degree of economic calculation.

Much of what is novel in UGC has arisen from new forms of social interaction facilitated by the internet. Social groups can now bring together people whose only interaction is online, and therefore easily retrieved and published. The publication itself, rather than being an afterthought as with old letters, is often central to the social interaction. Take the primeval form of interaction between computer users, the bulletin board, of which USENet provided the archetypal examples. As the name ‘bulletin board’ indicates, these began as straightforward adaptations of a Start with the household 31 long-standing form of social interaction.
