tangible media object[edit]

Isn't that just a media object that's tangible? Besides, can you expand on your definition a bit? I still don't know what this is after reading your definition. Which field is it used in? JamesjiaoTC 21:13, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

I have deleted it. Vanguard33, please see WT:CFI. --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 21:16, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

Explanation: Meta and James: There is an entirely new digital media universe arising around the precise definition of a "tangible media object." (see, e.g., MIT's "Tangible Media" Laboratory -- http://www.media.mit.edu/research/groups/tangible-media). The combination of the terms tangible + media + object gives rise to a new, important and heretofore un-classed term distinguishing this particular media type from that unilaterally residing in the digital realm. It is vital to provide an agreed upon definition of this term as new methods of bridging these objects (tangible) to digitized connectors have and are arising on a daily basis (see Microsoft's QR Coding and Samsung's NFC Tec Tiles both bridging tangible media objects to digital URL's with corresponding links wherein the user may select a link resulting in an executable action directly associated with the primary tangible + media + object. Tangible media objects include, of course, those conventionally known such as artwork, magazines, newspapers and the like, but the actual act of bridging to digitized information has also resulted in a natural broadening of the term to include, for example, point of sale devices adorned with ISIS, Macy's, AMEX, MC or Visa logos (as an example) such that a bridge is being created by use of an NFC tap on a smartphone with the tangible media object (POS adorned with media) resulting in: a) a link enabling the user to obtain a coupon, b) a link allowing the user to purchase an item, or the like. This is a completely new term which requires provocative thought and definition. I am certainly open to alternative definitions. However, now that you both understand the expanding use of this term, you must admit it it completely appropriate to include the definition of this term in this great Wiktionary body. Simply acting to "remove or delete it" is contradictory to the Wiktionary charter and is completely unfounded in the provision you rely upon (Jame). Vanguard33 (talk) 21:43, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
