It shows there is more than just logistic dichotomies and unveils media as a creative tool and as a carrier of the information, either in the o -line or on-line world, in both, wired and mobile technologies. Consequently, it is mirrored by our society, like media driven reality in the direction of mono-, multi- and inter-media cultural and artistic, research and scienti c, educational and training platform. Technology as a form that changes content could be taken by initiative from below as digital literacy or by dictate from above as digital slavery.
