Once Upon a Time in the West
We keep on talking about "new media", while in actually fact these
media are anything but new. The Net is twenty years old, if we start
counting from the advent of the Web, forty if we start from Arpanet.
Spacewar!, the first videogame ever, is more or less the same age.
Virtual worlds are the updated, lighter versions of a technology
acclaimed as "the future" when Second Life programmers were still in
diapers; social networks are the bastard sons of Fidonet. As for the
computer, it is younger than Lord Byron, but certainly not than his
daughter Ada.
Once upon a time there was the electronic frontier, an abandonware
myth which was able to regenerate itself thanks to the continuous
advance of the frontier itself. Like in space, in technological
progress there's no ocean at the end of the trip. But, unlike the
space race, the race to the next technology is endless, and
endlessness is boring.
