<nettime> Definitions

Is it really that important to spend all this time and bandwidth 
defining the term 'new media'? In the end, no matter how anyone 
defines it, the gods of language are not going to carve it it stone. 
It will still never be a final, definitive definition and will always 
be interpreted somewhat differently by each person who uses the term. 
Whatever it means to you is what it means. Now get back to work and 
make some new media...

something strange and extravagant to break the monotony of a decorous 

      - Ralph Waldo Emerson
