  The Internet as Mass Medium
There is much at stake in hanging on to traditional definitions of mass media, as shown in the considerable anxiety in recent years over the loss of the mass audience and its implications for the liberal pluralist state.
If the category of mass medium becomes too fuzzy to define, traditional effects researchers will be left without dependent variables, and critical scholars will have no means of discussing issues of social and political power.
For any medium to be considered a mass medium, and therefore economically viable to advertisers, a critical mass of adopters must be achieved.

How can these physicists claim they have discovered the origin of mass when their proposed mechanism fails to explain the very things that make it what it is? Well, as Bill Clinton might say, it all depends on what you mean by mass.
The result is a retarding force, which is proportional to the acceleration, as in Newton's second law, which defines inertial mass as the ratio of the force acting on an object to the acceleration produced.
It might be possible to cancel mass, creating an inertia-less drive that could accelerate a spaceship to nearly the speed of light in the blink of an eye.

 The Panorama: History of a Mass Medium. - book reviews ArtForum - Find Articles
Despite predecessors such as baroque theatrical stagecraft and the "Eidophusikon" invented by the scenic designer de Loutherbourg in the mid-eighteenth century, it was only with the onset of the Age of Revolution that the time was ripe for a new mass entertainment.
Although competing claims to its invention were made by Johann Adam Breysig, the first patent for a panorama was taken out in 1787 by Robert Barker, who also coined the word from the Greek pan (all) and horama (view).

This might mean we can get away from radio as simply a transmission medium where any kind of work (random noise, chat, music) can be broadcast in the same way, to an understanding of radio as something which we use to do things we can't do elsewhere...
But mediums then individualize their practice; they intensify the skills associated with them; and, importantly, they acquire histories.
For centuries it was only within and against the tradition encoded by a medium that innovation could be measured, just as it was in relation to its reservoir of meanings that new ranges of feelings could be tested.
