According to conventional wisdom we frequently hear that “new media” and new technologies are revolutionising the world we live in. By investigating these presumptions in this article, I am going to try to review different critical perspectives interpreting new media and question the distinction between new and old media through Bergson’s philosophical method in order to identify “false problems” and “false divisions” as well as different concepts that we encounter in the world of new media today. I will also investigate what’s new about new media by considering their contiguity with old media as well as re-evaluating the political connotations of terms such as “convergence” and “interactivity” which are regarded by many commentators as false problems within new media. In this article I shall explain why we should use the following terms: “remediation” and “intra-activity” as opposed to “convergence” and “interactivity”, respectively.
