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?

What else, then is a communication technology, just like a pencil?
