Convergence, Fan Culture, and Star Trek - Many scholars have their own take on what convergence is and it all depends on what field of work they are involved in, which makes it hard to give convergence a definite definition. It simply has no single agreed upon definition, but as Potter Steward might say, “I can’t define it, but I know what it is when I see it.” One of the principle elements to convergence is its interactivity and technology, which is greatly demonstrated through participatory cultures such as that of Star Trek.

He sees, smells, and touches everything around him.  But I'd like to focus on one of the quieter moments - a moment of convergence.  The narrative encloses Stephen in a cloud of his own past, present, and future as he stands in a Dublin courtyard:   He began to beat the frayed end of his ashplant against the base of the pillar.  Had Cranly not heard him?  Yet he could wait.  The talk about him ceased for a moment: and a soft hiss fell again from a window above.  But no other so...   [tags: Portrait Artist Young Man] 988 words
