Directed by David Thorburn

The Media in Transition Project Mission: "The goal is to sharpen our awareness of the NewMedia as a thing which emerged from history. Historically informed perspective that maps a sensible middle ground between the euphoria and the panic surrounding new media. Such an understanding of emerging communications technologies, at once skeptical and moderate is the goal of the Media in Transition Project."

Note: These summaries were written by Mary Hopper while she was Managing Editor of Media in Transition.
There is also an archive of home pages co-edited by David Thorburn and Mary Hopper on the MIT server.
