WedDesign: Intro to Internet - How the Internet Began as a Communication Tool (W2-P4) Sp18


How much do you know about the development of the Internet and the use of computers as communication tools?  

What would a timeline (a list of events) look like for the development of the Internet as a communication tool?  

Starting with the late 1960s, what new communication tools appeared on the Internet?  Examples: What year did email first appear?  What year did blogs appear?

Zuckerman gives a good timeline (or list) in his brief talk.



What would you add to this timeline for more recent years?  
See the evolution of social media for the rest of the timeline.

WedDesign: Intro to Internet - Communication Technology (W2-P2) Sp18


What is Communication?
 “A process by which information is exchanged between individuals through a common system of symbols, signs, or behavior” (Merriam-Webster).


What is Technology?
“a design for instrumental action that reduces the uncertainty in the cause-effect relationships involved in achieving a desired outcome”(Rogers).

What exactly does that mean?  Break it down.  Piece by piece.

"Tech" in the Dictionary: (Dictionary.com and Merriam-Webster...)

How's the term "technology" used on Twitter right now.



So, given the above definitions, what is communication technology? Media technology?

Is a pencil a technology? Is it a communication technology?
