Tech and Media

Metatrons Art Gallery

The internet has evolved quite quickly:

1. dialup (10 years ago) – the good old days of tying up a phoneline for hours on end.  Basically text and images, an attempt to reproduce the written page.

2. basic broadband (3 years ago) – depending on where you live, access to 1 Mbps broadband has now become the norm.  Great for audio, and is usable for basic video.

3. faster broadband (less than 12 months): still struggling to make inroads.  Trying to push the streaming DVD model.

along the way, we have seen greater sophistication in page layouts, an adoption of ad-supported media, and greater interaction.  The net has become a de-facto aid for the human mind.

Cheaper Bibles

Technology is a powerful beast.  From the printing press was spawned the Renaissance and the Modern World.

Books and printing transformed the nature of knowledge.

We are living in a time when once again, consciousness is being altered by the way we gain and then impart experience.

“But the imact of Gutenberg’s technology was not about cheaper bibles – it instead unleashed an entirely unforseen intellectual revolution: it gave any one with an idea the ability to publish. Anything.”
