I used to think New Media was a collaboration between video production and other technologies to do create projects. I wasn’t aware of how detailed the technological side can be or of how collaborative based New Media is with different outlets. It requires interacting with others and building off ideas to achieve one goal, creatively and technologically.
After reading other people’s responses, and taking the courses for a while, that New Media is more of a collaborative experience between individuals and not just one person. It requires far more community building and connecting, sharing ideas and building off others in an attempt at creating something one individual may not have thought of alone. Individually we all have our own agendas, whether selfish or otherwise, but when shown the perspective of others, like in New Media, we can widen our scope of perception and better understand the world around us.
