New media

As I sat in a blogging rut I wondered about things on the net and then after listing to a podcast it hit me. I was part, if only an insignificant part, of what has been called new media. New media is a term that has been created to describe most internet mediums. New media scares the old media to death in my opinion. Oprah has even recently created a youtube channel for herself.Now weather she is sincere or just trying to keep up is something I don't feel I can judge but one thing I think we can all say is music on the net scares the music industry except for the select few that understand that the internet is not ruining them like most believe. Even I will admit that I listen more to podcasts than watch TV. Its become that old media feels threatened by new media to much and tries to catch up and usually fails miserably. If only we could understand that different medias are for different audiences and none of them are truly threatened then maybe a few less headaches would happen in the media world.
