Michael Murphy Publishes Chapter on History of the Web

Michael J. Murphy AccessFabrik Lab principal investigator Michael J. Murphy, along with his Dublin-based colleague Brian O’Neill, have recently published a book chapter inside the latest volume of Histories of Public Service Broadcasters on the Web by Maureen Burns and Niels Brügger. The book looks at the intricate involvement of national public service broadcasters in the development of the World Wide Web, and addresses many of the issues these organizations have faced.

The chapter is entitled Canadian Content, Public Broadcasting and the Internet: CBC’s Online Strategy 1995-2000, and “looks at CBC online innovation from 1995 to 2000, when despite major cutbacks in its own funding and radical changes in the structure of the Canadian Broadcast industry, the CBC determined that converged, multi-platform content provision was the best strategy for its long-term survival.”

The book can be ordered online at peterlang.com.
