This text examines the startling and rapidly changing developments in media technology, especially as they affect journalism and the news media. We now stand at the threshold of a revolution in the news and entertainment media, and those media as we know them today may soon cease to exist. Whereas it had always been a simple matter to distinguish between newspapers, broadcast television, cable television, motion pictures, telephones, and computers, those distinctions are quickly blurring as a new universal media looms on the horizon. Here Jim Willis examines the new multimedia--and the concept of "turbonews"--and how journalism, the news media, and our lifestyles will be changed forever.
