It was recommended I read some (if not all) Harold Innis. What a great suggestion! So far, so amazing!
In Bias of Communication, his thesis/focus discusses the social history of communication media. He believed that cultural stability depends on the balance and proportion of their media. In looking at that theory, he suggests we ask three basic questions:
- How do specific communication technologies operate?
- What assumptions do they take from and contribute to society?
- What forms of power do they encourage?
Still reading... just some food for thought.
