The Report

This document, the final report from Media Systems, is intended for a diverse group of audiences. But in particular, it is intended as a tool for two groups. The first are those who wish to support the ongoing growth and impact of computational media, in industry, universities and colleges, professional organizations and publishers, public and private funding, and other contexts. We hope that it provides a useful guide to what might be important to do, and why. The second are those who, in a variety of fields, consider computational media work to be an important part of what they do. We hope that this document provides them a way of clarifying this work to a variety of audiences — something to point to and say, "This is a description of the type of work I’m proposing."
