WORLD WIDE WEB
In the middle of the 15th century Johannes Gutenberg invented printing with movable letters. Thus preservable information was accessible for everyone. That was an important precondition for later Enlightenment.
Nowadays this information has become connectable through the Internet, especially the internet service WWW. Today just like in the olden days, many face the problem of how to use the media correctly in its full scope. Navigating in a constantly growing ocean of information.
People who often disclose very private details (mostly unwittingly) in their seemingly excessive need to share information. Especially in social networks.
As a media designer I find that the knowledge of media has only a very limited half-life. Another issue are the communication problems between man and machine, to name only one example. Is it not only natural then, that some people feel overwhelmed? And we are still at the beginning of the age of information.
I myself develop websites on a smaller scale. For larger, complex sites I closely cooperate with my partners in the media network.
