from “What is Media Archaeology?”

“New media might be here and slowly changing our user habits, but old media never left us. They are continuously remediated, resurfacing, finding new uses, contexts, adaptations.”

–Jussi Parikka

Media archaeology brings together the old and the new. Studying old media to understand the new media, and how they overlap one another. Just because there is something new, doesn’t mean the old gets replaced…it’s just another layer to what we already have. More of my reading notes help me figure out what exactly media technology is, and how it is related to my thesis themes.
