30 years of media tools & trends

The following timeline recognises that while we talk about media and particularly the web as being globalised, countries or regions have always not followed the same pathways through media consumption, use and creation. Media and technologies are re-appropriated in unexpected ways, or used to provide ‘revolutionary’ alternative streams of news and journalism, with individuals or organisations often leading the way to inform wider use. Consider in looking at this how those in other countries might be experiencing, reading or sharing either the same content you see, or the content you actually produce.
