Dead Media archive


Sections for this main page should include:

  • Welcome message
  • Definition of dead media. a bit of context vis-a-vis media studies/history
  • Editorial Philosophy -- to distinguish this from other online archives such as wikipedia (pluses: scholarly bibliography, not restricted to "neutrality principle", etc)
  • Context -- i.e. hosted by NYC DCC, why us, why now, etc.
  • background (started below)
  • a browsing interface? category based?
  • a "how you can get involved" paragraph.. i.e. "click here to start adding entries; click here to browse the archive"
  • info on what a wiki is and how to use it
