Chris Hecker andamp; Zachary Booth Simpson remediation:  remediation concepts of remediation:  concepts of remediation 'What is new about new media comes from the ways in which they refashion older media and the ways in which older media refashion themselves to answer the challenge of new media.'

So television narrative must be more open and multiple than the singular folk narrative with its comparatively tight closure.' (Fiske, 1987) 'As a variety of multiform stories make clear, print and motion picture stories are pushing past linear formats not out of mere playfulness but in an effort to give expression to the characteristically twentieth-century perception of life as composed of parallel possibilities…its alternate versions of reality are now part of the way we think, part of the way we experience the world.'
