New Media and Augmented Culture

The author’s Leonardo da Vinci Studies and work on a standard bibliography on perspective brought to light limitations of traditional print media and prompted study of the potentials of new media. In the 1990s this led the author to become an advisor to the Head of Advanced Networks, Northern Telecom (now Nortel Networks) and to the President of Bell Media Linx, linked with Bell Canada. From this emerged two books and a series of articles. This ongoing work is leading to a new demo which surveys developments in new media.
