Communication is a process that allows “things” to exchange information. Exchange requires feedback.
The word communication is also used in the context where little or no feedback is expected such as broadcasting, or where the feedback may be delayed as the sender or receiver use different methods, technologies, timing and means for feedback.
Thus communication can be synchronous or asynchronous
And what we say is often persistent – it’ll be around for a very, very long time
How will we communicate in future? Who knows? But you can help decide… If ingenious games designers can inspire thousands of people to collaborate to solve a puzzle, could we do something similar to tackle global warming, keep communities safe, provide support for the elderly, help disaster victims, lend and borrow money, conduct political and policy debates, teach and learn, design and make physical products?
