This book explores the major developments in communication technology
from the 1800s to today as well as both positive and negative effects
of those developments. A motion piece was also created to promote the book, and
that can be seen here.
Humans have always found ways to communicate with each other. We've used everything from cave paintings to social networking. People have always been concerned with changes in communication technology. Socrates was afraid of the impact writing would have on people's ability to think. Thousands of years later, we're worried about how technology impacts our lives, but is that fear really necessary?
