What’s New Media is a project I began while a student in DePaul University’s New Media Studies program. It was born January 3rd, 2006.
It is designed to be a valuable resource for students and faculty across a variety of new media themed courses and programs emerging within colleges and universities around the planet. Entries on the site are intended to highlight articles, papers, announcements, etc that highlight some aspect of new media, and specifically what is “new” about it. Commentary is exceedingly rare, as my goal is simply to aggregate a number of interesting sources for new media themed content, link to them, combine them, etc..
The blog currently averages almost 4,000 readers per month, and within the next year, I plan to turn the blog into a more community-oriented website; one that will encourage your participation and include content you find relevant.
This blog is a sister project to the Whats New Media Wiki, which all guests and visitors are encouraged to contribute to. Faculty and students from DePaul, Stanford University, New York University and the University of Amsterdam have used the wiki as a tool to teach new media students about collaborative writing, as well as a resource to learn more about people, concepts and readings considered fundamental to the field.
If you have questions, or are interested in participating in the project, you can reach me at matthew (at) whatsnewmedia dot org.
