As new media presents an ever-evolving set of skills, technology, information, and processes, its construction changes so quickly that it is almost impossible to determine the nature of these information and processes, but does however, create new wide networks that didn’t exist under the old media. These networks are nothing but today’s mediated societies. They are dense, comprehensible, manipulative, and interactive. In fact, through these networks, new media platforms have removed communication barriers, created decentralized communication channels, and cleared the path for a democratic and inclusive fashion that includes people even in repressive countries.
Far far away, in a land you haven’t heard much about on TV, there is a woman, just like your friend, your sister, your mother, your wife, who wants to be happy and live in a world that unconditionally gives her respect, dignity, and opportunity. She wakes up every morning to the unpleasant sound of the 5 a.m. alarm. As she walks swiftly to the door, she tries to go over her entire day and remind herself of the habitual tasks that she ought to do on that dreary day.
The world has never been as connected as it is today. We defied space – and soon maybe time – and made it easier than ever to cross the borders of our countries, to travel thousands of miles away, to discover a land far away from home, and to meet people that are so different from us. This is the world we have known for decades, and it is more than possible that this will even be called rudimentary in a few decades from now.
