The medium and the message

The launch of any new venture generates great excitement and anticipation for those involved in the project. Our first issue of Art on the line is certainly no different. For the first time the product of countless months of labour is released into the public domain, hopefully to attract the attention, and possibly the approbation and disputation, of a wide community of peers. However, the level of excitement and anticipation is perhaps further raised when not just the message, but also the medium is relatively new.
