Starr on the limitations of future forms of media

According to Paul Starr in The Creation of The Media:

"Things that work satisfactorily come to be thought of as right." (p.3)

This quote addresses the fact that current standards that are accepted limit the possibilities of future forms of media and technology. New forms of media tend to be based on the forms present of those that preceeded it.

A good, short post.

You have expressed it correctly and raised a key point made by Starr about the conservative nature of media institutions.
