The site is being somewhat withdrawn whilst I revise and revamp the whole thing for a possible relaunch.
+ Three new pictures in the gallery at Some Things About Art and Cities (Feb 2002).
+ New review of Art Crazy Nation on the Matthew Collings page (November 2001).
+ New review of An Introduction to Cybercultures (October 2001).
+ Three new contributions to the web future debate (October 2001).
+ Three new pictures in the gallery at Some Things About Art and Cities (October 2001).
+ In the section Some Things About Art and Cities, we have a new photo essay by Peter Shevlin on Turkish Diaspora in Berlin, added in June 2001. Viewers can note that the photo essay is a form very well suited to the Web; and also, of course, engage with the themes of ethnicity and the city.
+ Our sister site Theory.org.uk has had a major revamp for March 2001 with whole new sections of material on culture and identity!
New article: Internet Studies: What went wrong?
+ New bits on the Gilbert and George art page.
+ New debate: The World Wide Web: Just a passing phase? We want your views on this one!
+ Several new book reviews, and improved organisation of the review sections.
+ New domain and gateway, theoryhead.com, launched October 2000!
+ The Theory.org.uk Trading Cards Series has new cards for October.
The top page of the site was redesigned this month. And Theory.org.uk launched its new Trading Cards Series which is a new media phenomenon you'd better check out. You can even get the cards on your mobile phone -- see WAP Trading Cards.
(Various additions which later became part of Some things about art and cities. On the theory site, there's a new essay on Madonna). Otherwise, I've been completing the book Web.Studies (which we have new information about)... Now that's done, there will be more new content here soon.
We start the new century with Millennial photography in the new recyclable cameras feature. Plus our first review of a book which says "published 2000" inside! If you haven't visited recently, check out all the premillennial additions listed below...
We're on a new server so that the whole site really lives at www.newmediastudies.com and is fast and reliable!
New debate: Did Microsoft ruin the Web?. Other additions include new website reviews and new book reviews. I've revitalised and expanded the new media debates, and the effects section. Plus I've been designing the new site, internationalfilm.org.
We had 1,000 visitors in our first week; seems to be going well since we're not listed or linked to very much yet. Several new book reviews added to reviews, including review of the new journal New Media and Society.
