Some time ago, I mentioned the release of Charles Acland’s edited collection Residual Media on University of Minnesota Press. Well, it’s getting some attention. Will Straw’s piece figures prominently in a recent Henry Jenkins blog post, and Google Alerts (is it vanity or simply keeping track of one’s own online presence? you be the judge) just pointed me to this article in the Toronto Star, which nicely connects my argument regarding obsolescence with the recent iPhone craze.
Yay, home team.
