The era of globalisation is also the era of convergence where communication technologies come together in pocket-sized gadgets. The phenomenal advances in technology have no doubt made communication much easier, leading to the evolution of ever newer forms of expression that seem to be bound neither by rules nor convention, blurring boundaries between the producers and the consumers, and even the different forms of communication. The opening up of new vistas of expression has led to new debates about the ways in which communication technologies are evaluated. Computer-aided technologies offering a range of platforms for expression, call for a fresh evaluation of issues such as freedom of expression, libel and language.
