MX - The Language of New Media 94-103
The idea of the cinematic languages versus the print language is really interesting especially because of the transition from print to web. Most of the things that have been printed for hundreds of years are ending up on the web and the awesome thing is that they are able to "live" better on the web. Things like encyclopedias (wiki) or dictionary's even photo books and journals are now moving away from the personal realm into one that establishes and promotes community. By allowing everyone to be apart of the production and assemblage of information it in turn is more accurate, accessible and easily updated living document.
