A global nervous system: from the telegraph to cyberspace

BCM206, Uncategorized

We are an incredibly connected society through the rapidly growing technologies – from the beginning with the first dot-dash telegraph to accessing messages through our fit-bit tracking watches. I’m sure in 1837 Samuel Morse, the creator of the telegraph, had high expectations for global communications – but would he believe how accessible it is now?

Our world has developed into a cyberspace universe where you can contact the other side of the world in a second. The luxury of modern communication is almost taken for granted now.

We can see this digital media world almost as a ‘nervous system’ where communities from around the world can discuss common interests. Social media platforms such as Twitter, Reddit and Facebook all contribute accessibility to this nervous system which allows communication to be fast, effective and global.
