New Media is Hard

New Media is hard. New Media people (ideally) can express and understand ideas in symbolic language

$(‘a’).hover(function() {$this.append( . . . )}); and |a horn | a plug |

in a design framework, say a word processor, and interpret ideas in an expressive environment, say a billboard or a smart phone or a novel.

The three together are difficult to teach, to learn, and to master.
