As technology changes rapidly, new words and phrases are being introduced into our vocabulary, many with Net or Web affixed to them. The convergence of the media industries often brings with it a clash of professional vocabularies. Over time, some terms remain stable while others seem to disappear or transform their meaning. Multimedia and the Web from A-Z is a comprehensive dictionary aimed at stabilizing and clearly defining the language of multimedia. This second edition has been completely revised and expanded and contains 1,500 entries, including 500 new terms or phrases, all clearly and concisely defined.Extensive cross-referencing, an annotated bibliography, and an acronym table are other useful additions to this dictionary.
