The Quickly-Changing Medium

Getting a break from readings for this class, I had an opportunity to read some works on new media for my research and I am amazed at how quickly these media are evolving. I was delving into anthologies on new media, written in between 2003 and 2007, and the ideas and images all seemed as different compared to today’s new media as Kracauer’s ideas compared to today’s cinema! A mere ten years cannot keep up with the constant changes in, not just augmented reality, but even something as seemingly “simple” as web design or YouTube.
