Public Space and the Coevolution of Digital and Digitized Media

Niels Ole Finneman

Abstract


In the first section it is argued that digital media are characterized by a

theories af replacement and convergence ought to be replaced by a
theory of coevolution in order to understand how the internet and mo-

ses whether the influence of the old media in this coevolutionary pro-
cess also implies that differences in the existing media systems will
lead to different developments in the internet.
