The Medium is the Message

This sentence explains my thoughts on today’s internet usage. With the advent of Web 2.0, communication online has drastically changed. Discussions are being held via comments on blogs and similar platforms, internet lingo and meme usage are inserted into conversation to add a new dimension to the post, and even to the point of this internet based communication transcending to our spoken interactions. Nowadays there are many ways to join an online society by joining forums, starting blogs, and commenting frequently. In no time at all one can have connections and an infrastructure of who they are online.

What is the medium? Web 2.0. What is the message? Its here to stay, learn to use it. This user-generated world is the way in which our age is applying the internet. Therefore this user-generated, online society IS the internet right now. Perhaps when technology changes even further, blogs and user content will be a thing of the past, but until the medium changes, web 2.0 is the message

    Well said. Another aspect that might be considered with the sentence in it’s entirety, as quoted by Campbell in the article, is the ways in which a medium changes and evolves bring about changes on society as a whole.
