The Language of New Media
Parsing the Languages of the New Media is a blog about Lev Manovich's book 'The Language of New Media' (MIT Press, 2001), which took an academic approach to discussing the new media (the computer, the Internet), computer-mediated art, and new media art practices within the framework of historical visual and media cultures.
The blog was created by David Witzling, a postgraduate film student at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. It offers page-by-page commentaries on the book, with cross-linking, and links embedded in the text to other websites, offering further explanation.
