I learned a couple of new words recently - immediacy, hypermediacy and remediation. Jay David Bolter and Richard Grusin wrote Remediation : Understanding New Media, a book I have resisted reading for quite a while. Now I am looking at it, trying to repress the feeling of obstinacy which could make me turn away and claim I can do without reading it. The words are melting into my vocabulary. I still haven't accepted their significance.
