Old vs New

I guess the real obvious difference between old media and new media is the technology behind the new media. The conventional newspapers are old media and weblogs, RSS feeds, online news articles are forms of new media. Newspapers are slower in delivering the news, due to its pysical nature, while weblogs, RSS feeds and online news articles are all digital and is able to travel great distances in a blink of an eye. With this speed readily available it revolutionalizes the way people read, retrieve, and access news. Another old vs new media is the conventional mailing system vs email. Down fall is that some "official docs" needs to stay in original format instead of printing a copy. But regardless of that, your loved ones from around the world doesnt have to wait 3 weeks to receive a letter.
