(Populär)Wissen und Gedächtnis: Zur Wissensorganisation und -distribution im Internet
There is hardly a media technology that is more open in terms of ways of publishing and media reception than the internet. However the price you have to pay for this freedom is a low level of organisation. The broad range of media available can only become accessible – and this also means: accessible for archivation – if it is restructured by popcultural techniques of distribution or by introducing additional criteria of organisation (of knowledge) on a second level. This thesis is developed by referring to the history of the internet (ARPANET/CERN/XANADU) as well as selected applications (Google, Wikipedia, The Internet Archive). In doing so, it becomes evident that these applications make use of “old” media and in context of the multimedial internet can be described as submedia.
