<nettime> a new definition


I never planned to be an advocate of the term New Media, but
- it exists
- it was defined in wikipedia as a group of mass media and a chapter in
media study.

So, I took a chance to define it differently as a field of study.

And a remark: Wikipedia, its potential and importance are praised (and
used) by every New Media writer, but not many seem to be interested in
contributing. Even an important and beloved term like "Remediation",
which is well explained and widely used, is represented in Wikipedia by
an article on the environmental technique of the same name.

I'd like to ask experts to contribute with remarks and improvements and
links, and literature to prevent further swelling of the question "What
is New Media?"
