"Overture"

Coming into this class, I had very little knowledge of multimedia from an academic standpoint. Of course, I've been exposed to multimedia all my life—I just didn’t really know or pay attention to it. From reading the Overture I was hoping to get a clear answer, but after reading it I discovered that a clear answer isn’t really possible. Multimedia is many things, but it is very hard to pin down exactly what those things are, especially because some forms of multimedia haven’t been invented yet. I was also surprised to learn that the concept of multimedia isn’t new and doesn’t necessarily have to utilize computer technology (opera, for example, has been around for centuries). I look forward to exploring this new world more closely.
