The impact of electricity on a post-Guttenberg world changed the way we live, think and communicate. From the early days of the telegraph, telephone, radio, television, to the Internet and beyond, the ease and speed with which information can be conveyed digitally is dramatically changing long-established business and social patterns. Focusing on both contemporary and obsolete technologies and mediums, this course covers the impact of the digital revolution on culture, business and the individual. Equal parts communication, media study and popular history, we'll go from Thomas Edison to MTV to Facebook, and analyze communication and social trends. This course willprovide an understanding of how technology continues to consume older versions of communication, creating exciting hybrid communication mechanisms which redesign and reshape how we live and interact.
