Week 3: The Network Society Paradigm.

Hey guys, hope you’re all well.

In this week’s lecture, Ted heavily placed emphasis on the Network Society Paradigm as well as talking about cyberspace and different types of technologies.

Sputnik-1 is a revolutionary technology that was developed in the late-1950s. It was a distributed network that gave the end user control (this control was distributed to maintain coordination). Before this development, a distributed information flow was  unprecedented in a communication system. In effect, each user can broadcast to a network. An example of this is the internet as users can post, create, aggregate, curate and produce different content and upload it to basically anywhere on the internet.

Cyberspace, according to the lecture: A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators. A graphic representation of data abstracted from banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the non-space of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding.IMG_0237.JPG

Cheers,

Jack.

  1. Would be cool to hear more about your meme and less about the content of the lecture. It’s all accurate stuff, and the meme can be figured out itself, but to draw the direct link between your image and the topic would likely enhance this piece of writing a little more. Perhaps instead of something like cyberspace according to the lecture, have cyberspace in relation to my remediation or something like that? Would be great for you to fit in a little more of your own interpretations and what they mean a little more.
