Digital Revolution - 322 words
Graphic design was changed forever during the period of quickly evolving computer technology in the last quarter of this century. This time period, which came to be known as the "Digital Revolution", was originally opposed by many designers. However, after numerous developments in technology, the opposition died down. Computers were here to stay, and many designers embraced the changes. The entire design industry was about to be revolutionized. The revolution was foretold by the introduction of the Macintosh computer in 1984. It used bitmapped graphics and included a device called a mouse.

Being Digital - 573 words
Being Digital by Nicolas Negropointe was a very interesting book. I am not a big reader so it is hard for me to get into a book. But Negropointe provided a new view of some of the implications of digital technology that I have never heard before. Some of the other things that kept me in the book were the short chapters and the simple analogies, which really help me understand him more about were he is coming from. I also like the way he showed me his perspective through non-technical terms. It was not hard to understand at all. I liked the way he views the impact of technology through diverse perspectives. I was also particularly fond of the way he backed up or supported a lot of his informa ...

Digital Bootlegging And Its Effects On The Music Industry - 1,155 words
Before the advent of MP3 files it would require 1.400 megabytes to represent just one second of stereo music in CD quality. MP3 is short for Moving Picture Experts Group, Audio Layer III. Standard MP3 compression is at a 10:1 ratio, and yields a file that is about 4 MB for a three-minute track. In 1987, Prof. Dieter Seitzer of the University of Erlangen created the MP3 format to replace pre-existing MPEG audio coding. The reason MP3 files became so popular so fast is that when one creates an MP3 file, or ripped, from a compact disc, there is no loss in quality. Every copy made thereafter is identical to the last, so unlike old tapes the quality is the same from the first copy to the hundredt ...

Mark Posters The Mode Of Information - 1,361 words
ENGL444: BOOK CRITIQUE - Mark Posters The Mode of Information Mark Posters The Mode of Information can be seen as something of an attempt to establish a new discourse in socio-political theory. He does this mainly through the concerted criticism of several prominent philosophers, including Marx, Foucault, Derrida and Baudrillard. Typically, his prime concern with the bulk of most of these philosophers works is their tendency towards totalization, or their failure to adequately incorporate an understanding of what Poster sees as the mode of information into their theorizing. From what remains of his counterparts theories, Poster attempts to assemble his new discourse, incorporating into the e ...
