Re: <nettime> What *ARE* New Media?



hmm, i always thought new media was just a way to talk about multimedia 
without sounding dated

audio/visual -> multimedia -> new media -> integrated media -> whatever

or maybe this is the history:

computer art -> new media -> digital art
 
anyway, imho new media is not a very descriptive term, an ephemera of 
historical note, and not really worth an effort to fix its definition
