Strengths of the Internet

Each new medium has its own strengths and weaknesses (sometimes one and the same thing)

  1. Interactivity - Allows for multi-modal communication, one to one, one to many, many to one, or many to many.
  2. Multimedia - Centered around the movement of individual packets of digital information, allowing for ultimate flexibility in medias delivered.
  3. Hypertextuality - Built around the ideal that any item can connect to any other item.
  4. Stateless - Unaffected by time and space.
