From 1850s to the present time, electronic communications have been evolving from the analog transmission of harmonics over a singular wire connected to boxes with a single hole for transmitting and receiving to texting, FaceTime, Facebook, and twitter. This evolution did not follow a direct path from A to B; instead, it took a winding and interlocking path. This path is represented via a timeline that textually analyzes the data collected, and through graphical interpretation, depicts the history of the path. With this one should be able to see the growth of the enterprises through history, which is shown horizontally, as well as the different variables that affected their growth along the way, depicted vertically. Both of these variables are depicted on one chart, from the same vantage point. This timeline not only shows the path of growth of the technology and its enterprises but also the interrelations of the different enterprises and how either technology, politics, or geographic presence influenced this swath. The online interactive Prezi timeline “Evolution of Electronic Communications” referenced in this abstract can be found at https://prezi.com/vt9673mvbqsa/evolution-of-electronic-communications/ .
A project presented to the Information Design and Technology Program in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Master of Science degree.
