Even just pinning down the proliferation of technologies is a bit overwhelming and yet I can't really afford to spend more than a page or two on this. I don't think I have the vocabularity to capture how the internet allows traditional media (TV, radio, newspapers, books, etc.) to be accessed from new devices, provided in different ways, etc. and I feel there must be ways of categorising the different dimensions of change, of which I'm not aware.
> I was wondering if anyone could recommend any literature reviews that succinctly clarify the issues around defining the technological and social rise of new media in a way that can give me the background info to situate my literature review? I know it's a massive topic, but I need something to give me a handle on it, which won't take up too much of the time I should be giving to the rest of the review.
