Multimedia

Before the personal computer boom, the word multimedia had a much simpler connotation - paper, glass, and acrylic on canvas was (and is) multimedia. Today, the definition has expanded to include using a computer to present and combine text, graphics, video, animation, and sound. The birth of the Web led to a great (perceived) potential for multimedia, because of the ability of networked computers to (someday) deliver this information to all users and to (um, soon) allow everyone to join in the world of multimedia publishing.
