Response to Lecture on History of Communications
In regards to last night's lecture, it was fascinating to learn how much communication has evolved after thousands of years. New technology and inventions have major impacts on the way we interact with each other. It is evident through the progression from cave paintings to the internet that humanity is constantly striving to enhance and catalyze the mediums by which we communicate. One of the most notable things that was discussed in class too was the notion that our methods of communication affect the way we perceive the world. With the seemingly infinite information sources that the internet has to offer, we gain access to a plethora of websites. This broad range of knowledge allows us to fabricate well informed opinions and ingest information more open mindedly.
