Abstract: This article is the introduction of an edited book on New Media Technologies and Empowerment. It introduces the book and its contents and also draws upon IPTS work on the socio-economic impact of social computing to make the case that altough neither empowerment nor commodification describes best the reality of current practices, the activities and contributions of millions of people who are now connected online, enabling them to act together on issues they regard as important, cannot and should not be ignored either.
