Reading Convergence Culture I couldn’t help wondering exactly what creators want from their fans of their products…I thought one of the goals of any creator is to produce materials that are thought-provoking. I also thought these products were supposed to create some form of fan creativity. I feel that fans for the most part understand their place and the limitation of their roles. Hence I find it quite confusing that creators are threatened by the fans who indirectly keep them in their industry. Or am I missing something? While a few fans may over step their boundaries as noted with Dino Ignacio’s depiction of Bert interaction with Osama Bin Laden, one cannot help but applaud what Heather was able to achieve through the power of technology (online community) and the spirit of a true fan.
Fans’ Creativity vs. The Creators
