2024 Future of Communication Technology

  1. 1. 2024 FUTURE OF COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY Holly Baldwin COMM303
  2. 2. INTERNET
  3. 3. The effort to globalize the internet is just beginning in 2014. Threat of cyber terrorism and internet security issues will probably inhibit this initiative. These credible concerns will likely result in national services monitored by each homeland government. By 2024 one outcome seems most imminent, Public Internet. Government run and funded by American tax dollars it will be equally available to all. I hope I’m incorrect and we will still enjoy privatized net neutrality and relative transparency in the United States.
  4. 4. Uses and Gratifications Theory Social behavior theory that states participants use technology to attain certain goals. Users are empowered by their choices instead of victims of media effects. “Three main categories of gratifications:  Content: Uses for the Internet include the need for researching or finding specific information or material, which are gratified with content.  Process: Users gain gratification from the experience of purposeful navigating or random browsing of the Internet in its functional process.  Social: Uses encompass a wide range of forming and deepening social ties.”
  5. 5. MEDICAL IMPLANTS
  6. 6. Moore’s Innovation Adoption Rate In the near future many serious health conditions will be monitored and possibly remotely controlled by web enabled medical implants. The “Graying of America “ and public insurance will necessitate a need for innovative healthcare procedures. Estimates of more than 72M older Americans by 2030 almost doubles today’s elderly population total. By 2024 we will have crossed the chasm from early adopters to early or late majority adopters.
  7. 7. MOBILE DEVICES
  8. 8. Critical Mass Theory Universal access is the stage of Critical Mass Theory when the media has completely saturated the population. In 2014 we have already reached the “tipping point” in which more users have adopted the technology than not. I believe by 2024 almost everyone on our planet will be internet enabled by mobile devices. These users’ will control almost all aspects of their daily lives with this technology. A current United Nations’ study has revealed more people have cell phones than have access to toilets. That last statistic is a sobering divination of the future priority of this pervasive media.
