Transcript of Evolution Of Communication

- the creation of different types of communication The Evolution of Communication 200,000 B.C : LANGUAGE 3,500 B.C : WRITING 1,500 A.D: LONG DISTANCE early 1800s :
TELEGRAPH early 1900s: RADIO / TV early 2000s: MOBILE The first form of communication was oral language. Folklore and history was passed down from generation from generation by word of mouth. 200,000 B.C. : LANGUAGE 3500 B.C. : WRITING Some of the first writing systems were developed in China and Egypt. As the human culture developed it became harder and harder to rely on spoken word. Books and scrolls had the ability to create permanence. The technology used to create the camera led to the development of motion picture. Nickelodeons were the first type of makeshift movie theaters put outside storefronts. early 1800s cont.: MOTION PICTURE late 1800s: telegraph/telephone The telephone was invented by Alexander Graham Bell and unveiled at the first centennial in Philadelphia. The telephone was revolutionary because it allowed people to communicate over vast distances during real time. late 1800s continued: telephone The telegraph was invented by Samuel Morse and he received a federal grant to continue his work. The first telegraph was sent from Baltimore to Washington D.C. The first telegraph sent read,"What hath God wrought." Alexander Graham Bell the first telephone 1900s: TV/RADIO Radio revolutionized mass media because it was the first mass medium that brought sports, music, talk, and news into households. The radio also assisted in the shift from point-to-point communication to point-to-many communication. 1900s cont.: TV Television became extremely popular in the 1950s. Within 10 years of its invention, the television reached 85% of American homes. By 1959, at least 40 million homes had televisions. Today, television is the media medium Americans spend the most time with. Since the 1950s, TV has evolved greatly. During the technology boom of the 1990s and early 2000s, mass media found itself in uncharted waters. New mediums were available and mass communication was changed forever. Computers, the Internet, and World Wide Web all could distribute information much quicker. Social networking sites began popping up, and the invention so many rely on today, the smart phone was introduced. These advances have changed media forever and have actually created challenges for the "old" media to stay in business. CONCLUSION WHAT IS COMMUNiCATION ??? STORY TELLING from 2000s:
SYMBOLS HAS COMMUNICATION EVOLVED ? Communication has not evolved ; rather it is the means of communication that have evolved over time. It is the man’s continuous pursuit to excel that has always left some scope for further development and this drives us to develop them even further. We have evolved from communicating through silent signs and expressions to instant messaging right across the world. We always feel with the advent of some new means that THIS IS IT! We feel nothing can possibly be better than this, but then always surpassing our expectations comes a new mode altogether shifting the Paradigm of Communication HOW HAS IT EVOLVED Cave Paintings: 30000 BC they were paintings on the walls of the caves where the cave man lived and were made using blood or the pigments of various colourful fruit pulps. Unlike Cave Paintings these pictures were carved on the surface of the rocks using primitive tools PETROGLYPHS
7000 B.C Pictograms and ideograms represented a concept or an activity on the rock. PICTOGRAMS 8,000 B.C : PICTURES / SYMBOLS Papyrus is a thick paper-like material produced from the pith of the papyrus plant. It was used as a writing material. First Library:228 BC it had a collection of thousands of clay tablets and fragments containing texts of all kinds but accessible only by the aristocratic class thus limiting the dispersion of knowledge among a selective pool of people. 1,500 A.D: LONG DISTANCE Smoke Signals: 150 BC chinese soldiers were able to transmit messages as far away as 750 km in just a few hours with smoke signals along the Great Wall of China. Pigeon Post: 7 BC pigeons were effective as messengers due to their natural homing abilities. The pigeons were transported to a destination in cages, where they would be attached with messages, then naturally the pigeon would fly back to its home where the owner could read his mail. Marathon Man:5 BC they were messengers on foot carrying messages across regions within days. Greeks could cover 150 miles in two days on foot. A heliograph is a wireless solar telegraph that signals by flashes of sunlight (generally using Morse code) reflected by a mirror. The flashes are produced by momentarily pivoting the mirror, or by interrupting the beam with a shutter. HELIOGRAPH Maritime Flags: 14 AD early 1800s : MASS COMMUNICATION Mail Service: 185 BC Postal Mail service developed in India as early as 185 BC because of great economic growth and political stability. Newspapers: 1650 AD The first newspaper was printed in Germany and was called “Einkommende Zeitung”, and today after almost 360 years we have 6580 daily newspapers in the world selling 395 million copies a day. Hard Bound Books Production of books was first started in the Roman Empire as it became the literary capital of the world in the Middle Age. FAX : 1900 Telegraph: 1846 Fax (short for facsimile), sometimes called telecopying, is the telephonic transmission of scanned printed material (both text and images), normally to a telephone number connected to a printer or other output device. Morse code: 1836 Helpful in mass communication it was developed by Peter L. Jensen and Edwin Pridham in the United States of America. LOUD SPEAKER Color Photography: 1963. Instant color film, used in cameras which yielded a unique finished color print only a minute or two after the exposure, was introduced by Polaroid. early 1980s: INTERNET Arpanet: 1969 the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) was the world's first operational packet switching network and the progenitor of what was to become the global Internet. The World Wide Web (abbreviated as WWW, commonly known as the Web), is a system of interlinked hypertext documents accessed via the Internet. WORLD WIDE WEB : 1991 EMAIL : 1971 Google is a search engine for information on anything o this earth.
