This book is the result of an assignment from the course Media Production and Consumption at the Windesheim Honours College of the Windesheim University of Applied Sciences in Zwolle. Students were asked to use their creativity by choosing a topic of interest for them and try to link it to some of the media related theories.
The world is changing ever since. Due to new information and communication technologies (ICTs), this change is perceived a lot faster than ever before though. The era the world is in at the moment is often described as the Information, Computer or Digital Age. It is characterised by the shift from traditional industry to an economy based on information: “Like the steam engine during the First Industrial Revolution, the ICT has completely changed the way society organizes its economic activity” (Humbert, 2007, p. 2).
