Gutenberg’s invention of the printing press allowed the mass production of books since the late 15th century. Though newspapers first appeared in the early 1600s, it took newspapers until the late 19th century to reach a wide audience. The word “the media” began to be used in the the 1920s when the radio was invented. Then television was introduced after WWII and became a household item in the 1960s. The audio-visual forms of media soon became popular because they engaged people with sound and moving images, allowing passive participation compared to actively reading newspapers. In the past twenty years we have witnessed the rise of the Internet and digital media, which do not only shape the way we consume information but also how we create it. Billions of people can now access virtually all of the world’s news, information and entertainment wherever they are with their mobile phones, laptops or tablets. No doubt the digital media will have profound effects on our society. What do you think they will be?
How will the digital media change our world? What will the future media look like? What will happen to the old forms of media (newspaper, radio, television)?
You can watch the discussion Freedom of Expression and the Role of Media again here.
You can also collect together vocabulary that is important when it comes to freedom of expression and media in this shared document. Everyone can write on it and you can try to find definitions and translations to the words added there.
The digital media has made people less careful of what they say, and people rely more and more on the internet as an external memory. Soon it might be that no one remembers anything since everything we need to know will be on the internet. We doubt that the 'old media' will disapper completely, but it's importance has already decreased, and it will probably do so in the future as well.
We strongly agree with Kaanem. We believe that people will indeed become lazier and trust more in the information they get from internet. The future media will probably include the internet of course and also the old forms of media which may have new, more complex forms in the future. Perhaps the internet will change somehow as well, but it's hard to say is it a good or a bad thing. More illegal downloads but more helpful information<=everything has its pros and cons.
If all the knowledge of the world is, at least in theory, just a click away from everyone who has a devise with Internet access, what will be the role of published news and one's competence of finding, processing and reusing adequate knowledge in different situations? What are the pros of shared encyclopedias (i.e. wikis) and an open public data?
Could the next step of Internet and information technology be a continuous access, a non-stop stream of online content? A bit like in these videos:
Every knowledge we know will change to digital form. For example, news papers will no longer exist because everything is read from the internet, through mobile phones and tabloids. Televisions starts to show more of subliminal ads. In the future every city will have huge billboards and they start to look like New York or Tokyo. Television and radio have to be updated for today's and for the future's necessities.
Well, I think that...
Watching television or listening radio is a quite passive ways of spending time. To develope correctly, brains need some kind of activation which passive forms of media can't provide. They are still usefull things when you can get usefull information from them but it seems that a big deal of stream is useless crap which meaning is to transform us passive mass and make us to accept unlogical and irrational facts without thinking or understanding.
