Media innovations: success and paradox. (Editorial Introduction)
AbstractI review the four main articles constituting this issue, highlighting successes as well as tensions and conflicts uncovered across the articles in various efforts at innovation. I conclude by noting how both individual articles and articles taken together reinforce, expand, and/or call into question larger patterns of media innovations as these have been articulated in previous issues of The Journal of Media Innovations.
