“OK Google, play ‘Without Me’ by Eminem.”
Guess who’s back, back again? Me, Jack!
In this week’s lecture, Ted spoke about the telegraph, one of the most revolutionary pieces of technology that has ever been developed. He also spoke about the linking that the telegraph has to our current technology-filled era.
In many ways, we are still living in the age of the telegraph, rather than the age of the Internet. The conceptual tools that were developed to explain the world of the telegraph are still the same tools that were developed to explain the world of the internet. I find this really interesting as I didn’t even know that the telegraph has such an impact on our everyday life.
For my remediation this week, I decided to make a meme that gives a little insight into what the first successful transAtlantic cable was aiming to achieve compared to its first faulty launch.
Have a good week,
