History of Information

UC Berkeley,, Spring 2014 , Prof. Geoffrey D. Nunberg

Updated On 02 Feb, 19

Overview

This course explores the history of information and associated technologies, uncovering why we think of ours as "the information age." We will select moments in the evolution of production, recording, and storage from the earliest writing systems to the world of Short Message Service (SMS) and blogs. In every instance, we'll be concerned with both what and when and how and why, and we will keep returning to the question of technological determinism: how do technological developments affect society and vice versa?
