New media is defined as the new medium contemporary society uses to communicate thoughts and ideals, debate and compromise, conduct business and market products, and encourage development and innovation. The platform for new media, computers and internet, has had a profound global impact. This platform has facilitated exponential innovation and development in government, commerce, the arts and socialization. New media is a nonlinear interactive system encouraging thought and innovation far beyond what was imagined. Murray’s “Inventing the Medium”, contrasts two viewpoints based on the engineering mind and the artistic or humanitarian driven mind and illustrates how earlier thoughts from these two viewpoints predicted and shaped the new medium into what it is today. Engineers helped shape the complexities of the computational aspect of this medium to yield the technological aspect of what we have today. The humanity mind set ballooned intellectual and artistic expression upon this medium. Societal unification blossomed from this platform. New media forever changing the way we interact and view the world, has allowed us to strike down geographic, cultural, even linguistic barriers. The fragmented societies are shrinking to one global society. New media offers the opportunity of interactive governance, creating a global moral and humanitarian collective.
