Course Description

This course explores the history of information and related technologies, examining why we think of our current era as "the Information Age." The instructors examine select moments in the evolution of production, recording and storage of information, from the earliest writing systems to modern-day Short Message Service (SMS) and blogs. The focus will be on both what and when, how and why, and how do technological advances affect society and vice versa?
