Praise

The Digital Plenitude: The Decline of Elite Culture and the Rise of New Media by Jay David Bolter is a book about exactly that: the decline of one thing and the rise of another. The author attacks nor defends either, and it’s not even a matter of cause and effect, in his view, the more useful point being that the present multiplicity of options when it comes to media/art/culture is not a problem to be solved, but rather a concept to understand so that we may better navigate the changed world we still need to live in….Clearly-written, well-focused.—New York Journal of Books

The most thought-provoking sections of The Digital Plenitude explore how digital technology is reinventing art itself, birthing new forms….Bolter suggests we are witnessing the inception of a new cultural paradigm comparable to the advent of modernism in the early 20th century.

Frieze

Continues [Bolter’s] deep thought about broad issues of millennial media. Starting with our current political moment, Bolter looks back at the megatrends that landed us here and ahead to where they’re taking us next, including everything from McLuhan and modernism to sampling and remix.

Well-Read Bear

The Digital Plenitude is a comprehensive description of contemporary digital culture and many readers will find it relevant and extremely useful, while the unanswered questions require future research.
