Transcript of Media Technologies
- Touchstone of Web 2.0 is media convergence (social media/instant messages/blogs, etc.).
- All digital content is converted into electronic signals.
- Web 3.0 will be built on a semantic web with more meaningfully organized content and software agents that do the work for us.
Security & Neutrality
- Security: Phishing (identity theft), spyware (information gathering software), data miners, cookie matching, government surveillance.
- Net neutrality: every web site has the right to the same speed and access, despite attempts by Verizon & AT&T to give faster connections to clients willing to pay higher rates (effects on small businesses & non-profits?).
- Microprocessors were developed in 1971 (future PCs).
- NSF connects computers across the U.S. in 1982.
- AOL launches in 1985.
- Web browsers released in 1993.
- Broadband replaced dial-up connections by 2005 in the U.S.
- Late 1940s, analog sounds, images, and text were converted into digital & binary codes to improve rate of reproduction and storage.
- Internet began as a military communications network in the 1960s.
- Early collaborations between academic researchers and military via email in 1971.
- Social Media: extension of "new" media and Web 2.0 into tools that enable conversations.
- The question of "Bowling Alone" and the decline of social capital is posed, but so is the possibility for empowerment (recall last week's social mobility & revolutions/smart mobs).
- Consider two binaries: intimacy & solitude.
High mobility: digital library, mobile phone
High interactivity: Internet TV, future version of Kindle
High entertainment: high definition and high fidelity
High flexibility: listen to book and newspapers
