Media ecology

From Media Technology and Culture Change

Media ecology is "the study of media environments, the idea that technology and techniques, modes of information and codes of communication play a leading role in human affairs"(www.media-ecology.org).

"Media ecologists know, generally, what it is they are interested in—the interactions of communications media, technology, technique, and processes with human feeling, thought, value, and behavior—and they know, too, the kinds of questions about those interactions they are concerned to ask"(www.media-ecology.org).
