Is yet another 90’s buzzterm dead?

An interesting article that suggests that “New Media” was oversold. It was also undermined by the telopolies that promised optical fiber to the home, but delivered POTS and got out-maneuvered by cable. Still, I’m posting this on a 50.2 kb dial-up. I don;t think “New Media” runs on old copper. However, I do think that collaboration and community and social software may be the NBT, perhaps the New Media we didn’t know we were waiting for. ‘New Media’: Ready for the Dustbin of History?. “The digital age held out the potential for a genuinely “new media.” But is the World Wide Web only good for shopping and searching?” By Steve Lohr.
