Multimedia. We use the word once and a while and everybody knows what you’re talking about when you mention it. But, when you ask somebody to define the word, you usually fall on deaf ears. They usually mention something like a PC, camera or television but that’s just not enough. When I think of the term multimedia, I also think of those words. But in fact you just got to “dissect” the word multimedia to find it’s most fitting explanation. “Multi-media”, the multi stands for plural and media, well for medium. So we al now what a medium is, in my opinion it’s a device that can carry or send data to another medium. So multimedia for me is the use of different kinds of media to achieve the same “goal”. e.g a hard drive and a PC.
