Convergent Media

At times it seems the internet is alive, changing every femtosecond to reveal emerging technologies, network architecture, data communications and media. We use common interfaces such as smart phones to make calls and search the web. We can deliver text,audio, and video material over the same wired, wireless or fiber-optic connection.

Wikipedia describes Convergent Media as, “as the interlinking of computing and other information technologies, media content, and communication networks that has arisen as the result of the evolution and popularization of the Internet as well as the activities, products and services that have emerged in the digital media space. Many experts[who?] view this as simply being the tip of the iceberg, as all facets of institutional activity and social life such as business, government, art, journalism, health, and education are increasingly being carried out in these digital media spaces across a growing network of information and communication technology devices.”
