Effects of early choices

According to Paul Starr's Creation of Media:

"Early choices bias later ones and may lead institutions along a distinctive
path of development, affecting a society's role and position in the world." Starr, p2

In my opinion, according to early radio, this statement holds much truth. Choices made in the past have affected today's society. Those choices have molded and formed the way television and radio is ran today. Whatever choices that were made started the trends of media and helped to start the thinking process of how Radio and Television should be ran. From newspaper and radio to internet and television, they say with every choice there is a conclusion. Today's radio and television are the conclusions of past choices

A good post.

The best way to understand the path of a new medium is to examine the choices made for previous media.
