There is an insightful and engaging blog post by Adrian Miles on why Television and not Cinema might be the opt approach which could formulate New Media in the future. Adrian comments that Television might have a more adoptable approach rather than Film, by commenting that bandwidth and the length-time issue will have influence.
The entry makes interesting references to attention, aesthetics, time, multi-tasking and online environments.
Adrian Miles is a lecturer and researcher from RMIT Melbourne and InterMedia University of Bergen on new media, hypermedia, and interactive video.
