Genre for the people

I think it is a little dangerous though to allow the viewer to simplifly a work to it's genre. For a work to be reduced to merely to a style or medium is to completely miss it's meaning, impact and power. As new media work becomes ever more prevelant in the more established institutions, especially those in middle America, I hope that it is not reduced to the old addage 'I understand new media, therefore I understand this new media work'.
