MediaTech: The Evolution of MediaTech and You: The Third Screen and You (U12-P3) Fa13


So, according the previous post, technologies evolve.  New ones are created and some old ones go extinct.


Focusing specifically on media technologies, what new media tech has evolved recently?  Is there a new species of media tech?  It could be argued that "the third screen" is a new species.  Martin writes about it in his book, The Third Screen: Marketing to Your Customers in a World Gone Mobile.   What is the third screen and how has it evolved?  And, what does it have to do with your future?  What do you see evolving in the future?  Do you see a fourth screen?  No screen? What is the connection between your future and the future of media tech?



What could a media professional do to develop content and applications for this third screen?
If a 12 year-old, middle school student can do it, so can you.  Got an idea for an app?  Why not develop it?  Need help, let me know.




"The process to develop an iPhone app is not as hard or as simple as one might think."
How to develop an app?  Read and study the steps in this article.  Many of the steps you can handle on your own, but you may need to get help on some of them.  Got an idea for an app?  Why not develop it?  Need help, let me know.

MediaTech: The Evolution of MediaTech and You: The Process of Evolution (U12-P2) Fa13

Evolution is a process.
What are the steps in the process? Recall the steps in the Blackmore video clip in a previous post?

In this short clip the process is explained in a different way. Slow the process down and catch each step. It starts with organisms vary.



Now, instead of rabbits, what if we were talking about mobile phones or any other media technology?
Would the process be similar?  How so?

MediaTech: The Evolution of MediaTech and You: Genes, Memes and Temes (U12-P1) Fa13



Previous posts have offered theories for how technologies come to be and develop over time.  We've discussed, for example, Winston's model and we've discussed the Rogers' Diffusion of Innovations.  We now turn to our last theory -- technological evolution.


This theory is based on the biological theory of evolution.  One of the best explanations of biological evolution and the mechanism that drives evolution is found in Carl Sagan's Cosmos video series which was based on the book Cosmos.

As you are watching this clip from Cosmos, be sure to identify and be able to explain the mechanism that drives evolution.  Does this mechanism explain technological evolution?



Now take those basic ideas of biological evolution and see how they apply to technological evolution.  What do Kelly and Blackmore add to this theoretical perspective?

First, "Kevin Kelly on how technology evolves"
(You may want to start the Kelly video at about 8:20.)

 Second, "Susan Blackmore on memes and 'temes'" Share this post with others. See the Twitter, Facebook and other buttons below. Please follow, add, friend or subscribe to help support this blog. See more about me at my web site WilliamHartPhD.com.

If you'd like to know about my videogame research, let me know. I do research on adaptation games (i.e., games adapted from novels or films) and mystery/detective games. I'm working on my own detective game now.

MassMedia: International Journalism: The CNN Effect & the Social Media Effect (U14-P2) [VID]


In his book, Global Communication: Theories, Stakeholders, and Trends, Thomas McPhail defines the CNN effect as "the process by which the coverage of a foreign event by CNN causes that event to be a primary concern for its audience, which in turn forces the [U.S.] federal government to act."  See video clip.




One could add to this process how the  U.S. government may influence foreign governments/peoples through direct action (e.g., war) or through sanctions.




Does CNN still have this influence on foreign policy?  Any other news networks, U.S. or otherwise, have this influence?  Any other form of media now has this influence?  Think: Arab Spring (see first 2 minutes).  Think: Kony2012 (see short clip).  What role does social media play in shaping foreign policy?  How's that process work?

The "social media effect" is defined here as the process by which the coverage of an event on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, etc. causes that event to be a primary concern for its audiences around the world, which in turn forces foreign governments to act, thus further influencing the event.

See clip below for more the idea of social media effect.
