STS331 Lecture Notes EXAM I MATERIAL 01/14/2008 We will be understanding how technology works in culture, so more about the uses of television, and how the uses of television in society play a role. What are the implications of the code for our computers? Who writes that code? Who has the power to write it? Who is left out? These are larger issues such as, what does writing the code mean? We are looking at the cultural dynamics of society. Media changes a lot, so does society, and media has to change to society. We are going to look at how different mediums adapted to people at that time, or how people adapt to mediums at that time. We are using new technology, and everything else is old technology. How did people deal with old technologies when they were new? Think of different contexts in different parts of the world. We can learn about the future of new technologies in our time. We can learn about how they will evolve by looking back at history. There are certain patterns that seem to replicate the sort of patterns. Think of the printing press, it was a new technology, and it dramatically altered a lot of things in the world at that time.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
