Logan - Chapters 16-22

Chapters 16-22 of Understanding New Media conclude Logan’s assessment of the impact of New Media on various forms of Old Media. Print, he writes, will be obsolesced by graphics and digital images. Comics are now easily sharable on the Internet. The printed word and books have been influenced by New Media in that books are being put online and are being widely read on devices such as Kindles. Traveling by plane has been influenced because tickets can now be purchased online. Photography is also being changed, due to the use of digital cameras and online photo albums. The press (newspapers) and the news are being changed due to the fact that everything is now on the Internet. The motorcar has also been influenced by New Media because many drivers use GPS to get directions.
