Next to or sometimes in conjunction with mainstream media, the web is a
powerful platform for distributing alternative views, opinions,
interests and ideas. With personal publishing tools such as blogs, IRC,
live streams and video services, everyone potentially has their own
speakers corner. But two classic, yet essential, questions remain: What
do you want to say or show? And how do you get people to tune-in?
