Abstract:

When users click the Like button there is an exchange from structured linguistics to semiotics. Facebook users are communicating more than they just the fact they “Like” the content, they are associating themselves with symbolism interconnected to the content as part of their identity, creating a relationship in an inclusive network through semiotic nodes. Wiki will examine the symbolic activity behind the Facebook Like button, a black box, serving as a significant semiotic node within a social institutional means of transmission and expression through an interdisciplinary analysis by establishing the macro- and micro-level issues created and examining the significant roles it plays in policy, culture, innovation and technology online and offline.

How to Predict The Future (Spring 2011) – ‘Fatal Immortality’

December 9, 2011 · 1 Comment

I would like the thank the entire class for eye-opening and educational semester. I had a lot of fun with this, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it.

Chapter 1: To Catch A Hunter

I’m too old for this shit, he thought; out of breath, chest stinging, his clothes sticking to his body saturated with sweat. He pulled out his handgun, three shots to the deadlock of the door, a kick and his splintered obstacle crumbles. Gun drawn, he moves instinctually surveying the stairwell. No time to spare he begins a full sprint up the fleets of stairs, it’s not everyday the hunter becomes the hunted.

The Future of the Internet III by Lee Rainie and Janna Anderson of the PEW Institute surveyed internet leaders, activists, and analysts and other experts on what they forecast for the Internet as technology progresses in 2008.  The results shows an expectation of the mobile phone to become a primary device for online access, the improvement of voice-recognition, an increase of embedding of artificial and virtual reality in everyday life, and the improvement of the architecture of the internet. This blog post will investigate and focus further on advancement of mobile phones as the one of the primary devices for internet use, and the clear path of technology as it caters to an Internet on-the-go lifesytle.

Nnnnnnnnow…. no….. now… no now

After reading Richard O’Neill’s example of a forum held by the Highland Group a specific term stood out to me; “Nowism.”  Nowism is identified as a “trend enabled by software writers’ and marketers’ leveraging of mobile phones to create compelling applications that let users track their, their friends’, and like-minded peoples’ movements and moods in real time.” O’Neill went on to explain the speaker’s claims that how the applications these people used, would generate large amounts of data about the users themselves, which in turn could generate more data to be used to make the applications better.

iOutdate

Tom Standage’s “The Victorian Internet–The Remarkable Story of the Telegraph and the Nineteenth Century’s On-line Pioneers”  was an interesting read that made the audience, or me at least, realize the constant state of evolution and innovation that occurs in technology. One quote made famous by Issac Newton comes to mind, “If I have seen further it is only by standing on the shoulders of giants.” I feel like that quote encompasses the reading perfectly by watching the evolution of information transmission unfold and evolve from casserole plates to telegraphs to morse codes to telephones to where we are today. Here’s where I go all Apple fanboy on you.
