Re: <nettime> a new definition


beside, the term "media" is also not present in wikipedia. it  
forwards to "mass media" and that page gives some rather vague and  
technical description of media. defining or even only describing "new  
media" without first doing so for "media" sounds futile to me.

i was surprised to see the changes you noted in your mail, too. the  
interim text you mention was the most concise to appear, yet. i would  
propose to put olia's "new media" under "new media studies" (maybe  
except for the books section) and reanimate the "minghong" version  
("New media usually refers to ..."). of course wikipedia is about  
'doing it - so i'll do that immediately.
