History of the Internet | Video

History of media and communication is also the history of culture(s). Some technologies define not only the way of life, they also change the way we see ourselves and like/want to see ourselves.

Global connectivity has not only increased communication, it has also changed the way we communicate - affecting and altering our perceptions of the world. Culture as something belonging to a particular 'place' is contaminated (albeit, in a positive sense too) and is emerging more as a flattened topography cluttered with visual, textual and non-verbal messages that we witness as a language of the new millennium.
