Chris Atton y Graham Meikle son los editores de este volumen:

The papers collected in this issue help us chart this emerging territory. The authors share a concern with developing new methodological approaches. They offer work which is empirically-informed as well as theoretically-grounded. From one perspective, these papers can be seen to engage with aspects of convergence, from multi-platform publishing to concentrated ownership — the comings-together of content, communications and computing; of industries and audiences; of models and modes (Boczkowski 2004; Castells 2000; Pool 1983; Rice 1999). From another perspective, these essays are concerned with the opposites of convergence, with ways in which Net use can enable new configurations of news production, distribution and reception; new modes of authorship and audiencehood; new kinds of producer and consumer: pluralisation, multiplication, fragmentation — divergence (Atton 2004; Bruns 2005; Lovink 2002; Meikle 2002).
