Today's lay "experience" of war comes courtesy of soldier-bloggers, once-censored photographs available online, and "first-person-shooter" video games. Columbia College professors of new media Annette Barbier and Brendan Riley, with veteran video game producer Kevin Scott Mills, consider the impact of these new images on our perceptions of war.
