-print has a 200 yr history -take into consideration the lack of personal devices (portable devices, televisions, etc) -the only way for the 'outside' to get to each individual was through travel (person to person) or by paper Broadcasting = immediate revolution of news media why? --> ability to listen to things from around the world (radio was introduced in early 1900s -brought about lots of changes and adaptations to media -effects of new technologies like mp3 players, iPods, etc -radio broke the barrier by allowing people to be connected with the world Historians: radio is more revolutionary than television -Italian inventor -capability: passengers pay to have messages sent to shore -Dr. Sarnoff (who was at shore) received wireless messages from Titanic, and sent the names of the survivors -he was responsible for the communications systems aboard Titanic, the first ship to have a wireless communications system -in 1912, was invited to ride the Titanic but never went on board Marconi - best representation of radio
