New Media

One of the most interesting points in Jill Walker's account of a recent lecture by Lev Manovich is this comment from Espen Aarseth:

He suggested that the term and field of "new media" has a visual bias, slanted towards visual artists, computer graphics and Hollywood production qualities, which lets us forget that "ordinary" people's use of the net is non-visual: email, SMS, chat, etc.
