Getting to the point is a challenge for many people involved in digital communication due to the attention grabbing, information consuming, and mind altering effects of blending digital technology with physical reality. Here are some pointers for effective information labeling, communication and workflow.
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a simple method for clear, empathic communication consisting of four steps: Stating observations, then feelings, then needs, then requests. NVC aims to find a way for all present to get what really matters to them without the use of guilt, humiliation, shame.
The Toronto School of Communication created a discourse on technology that was more concerned with the overall mediating effects of technology on social, political, and economic life. It was dubbed the Toronto School because both Harold Innis and Marshall McLuhan taught at the University of Toronto.
The art of digital communication requires an intentional and conscious interface with digital as a medium, and having calculated the bio-cost of digitizing one reality into another and having maximized the time, energy and value of such an interaction and it's effectual involvement.
The digital interface is both an internal and external device we use for the expansion of time and energy in a sphere of reality that possesses the power and the force to alter your reality for the rest of your earthly experience – it is ‘that' critical.
Communication research is a small but intriguing field in the social sciences. This relatively new specialty crystallized into a distinct discipline within sociology complete with colleges, curricula, the authority to grant doctorates, and so forth—between about 1950 and 1955. Today it underlies most college- and graduate-level training for print and broadcast journalists, public relations and advertising personnel, and the related craftspeople who might be called the “ideological workers” of contemporary U.S. society.1
Until recently, the extant literature on the history of mass communication research has been notoriously sparse, celebratory, and methodologically naïve.
