Rapid technological changes have a way of making new media scholarship obsolete very quickly. At seven years old, this book is well past its usefulness. (In fairness I should have paid more attention to the date of publication before I purchased it.) The book actually serves as an interesting time capsule: remember when iTunes was revolutionary, when HDTVs were crazy expensive, when smart phones were status symbols, when people talked about "postmodernism" and "web 2.0" like they were revolutionary ideas, or when Attack of the Clones was an impressive example of digital film making? (No, I don't remember that last one either.) But the book is of limited use if you want to know about what is "new" in new media past 2007. Also, personally, I did not find the individual articles particularly impressive in their writing, scholarship, or originality—though it's hard to tell if the last two are a product of their age.

This is an excellent text for my college course in the history of media. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is curious about the media we take for granted.
