History of Media and Technology Brief History Media and technological advances have made leaps and bounds over the past century. From handwritten letters and newspapers in the 1800s, we progressed to radios and movie theatres in the early 1900s and then to television in the 1940s. Today, we have satellite television, the internet and smart phones. In the early 1900s the total daily newspaper circulation in the U.S, averaged over 15 million copies. Telephones were just merging onto the market, radio technology was primarily being researched by the Navy, and multiple reel movies were produced. By the 1920s, an estimated 40 million movie tickets were sold, over 2.5 million radio sets were sold in the U.S. and home movie equipment was introduced by Kodak. The 1930s begins the age of television. Electronic typewriters also begin to emerge and Western Union introduces coast to coast fax service. As early as the 1940s we begin to see the early stages of computers with the introduction of a teletypewriter, calculated that was tied by phone lines to demonstrate remote computing. By the end of the 1940s there was a shift from radio to television and color television set begin selling in the 1951. During this decade stereo music tapes went on the market as did the Univac, the first massed produced computer. With the invention of the microchip near the end of the decade, the computer revolution was born. Media and technology continued to evolve during the 60’s and the 70’s with newspapers and magazines digitizing production, the invention of the floppy disk, the first digital wireless network, Linkabit was created in San Diego, California, and the word “internet” enters the lexicon. By the 1980s, video games are all the rage. We get closed-caption television. Some major newspapers offer online text versions, and CDs begin to outsell vinyl records. The 1990s burst with media advances such as the development of HTML which facilitated the creation of the World Wide Web. By 1998, an estimated 150 million people were using the internet and traffic on the internet was doubling ever 100 days. In the past twenty years, the world has seen technology devices decrease in size while the amount of information is holds continues to increase. We have moved away from single specialized devices to “bundled” devices such as the Iphone with internet access, camera, phone, text messaging, email retrieval, etc. The list goes on and on, growing exponentially day by day. People today can access information through any number of ways. As the access to information becomes easier, the sharing of ideas follows suit, and the advances in media and technology increase faster than ever before 1900: U.S. has 2,150 daily newspapers, 478 tri- or semi-weeklies, 14,717 weeklies. 1900: First overseas phone call, from Key West to Havana. 1901: First electric typewriter, the Blickensderfer. 1902: Images can be transferred by photoelectric scanning. 1902: Vivaphone, Chronophone, and Kinetophone synchronize sound and film. 1906: An animated cartoon film is produced, Humorous Phases of Funny Faces. 1909: First broadcast talk; the subject: women’s suffrage. 1910: Daily newspapers in U.S. peak at 2,200. 1910: Dance music is recorded. 1912: Universal Pictures Corporation is formed.
