A Brief History of Media – Dan Gillmor

It is an interesting 5-min talk on the history and the future of media.
I think the focus is a bit west-centric because there were proto-writings before Egyptian writing. Also, paper and printing were originated from Asia, namely China. However, most people should still be able to see the general trend and the evolution of media – cave/wall painting > writing > hand-written book > printed book > printed ads (?) > telegram > newspaper & magazine > radio > TV > Multichannel TV > Internet > Collaboration > Collaboration + Real-Time > Future (Control and censorship?).
