interesting: 'old/new' different from 'continuity/rupture'; and 'the
overlapping of differences that digital media allow'.

on 'the overlapping of differences [and similarities] that digital media
yes, the staggering hybridity of not only art (forms),
but of just about everything amenable to the digital.
the lettriste isou said (1947)
"Each poet will integrate everything into Everything."
and that is a poetical proposition--figurative,
not literal--but relating things
is erm fundamental to thought
(a world view would include
objects and relations between them).
included exclusions and excluded inclusions,
the principal of inclusion/exclusion
beyond p(aub)=p(a)+p(b)-p(a^b)...
activity that increases several orders of magnitude,
however continuous, creates its own ruptures,
its own 'newness' and unrecognizables.

and as bill pointed out,
the need to relate
concerning little areas
to other little areas
is very great
or they stay little.
