Dead Media and Us: media platforms


What does our technology say about us?
The technologies that make up today's media platforms, including the ideas that didn't work on their own but have become part of various media, weave a complex story about our shared society and history, according to Finn Brunton, a New York University postdoctoral researcher. "Along with being fascinating and often funny, looking deeply into the history of media can offer us insights into how things work and fail to work," he said. "Media technologies offer narratives to us. When we build a media platform, we are offering stories of how we think the future should be, about how we conceive of thinking and communication."
