Jenkins on star wars

This weeks reading involved Jenkins discussing Stars Wars and its influence on consumer generated content (among other things).  Towards the end of the chapter he has a section entitled “where do we go from here?” This is i found to be the most interesting part.He states “In a world of ever-expanding media options, there is going to  be a struggle for viewers the likes of which corporate media has never seen before. Many of the smartest folks in the media industry know this: some are trembling, and others are scrambling to renegotiate their relationships with consumers. In the end, the media producers need fans just as much as fans need them.”
