Communication on the Internet

What is Media Literacy

With Media Literacy we get critical reception + creative emision. It’s nothing but a runaway from Bourdieu and Passeron’s reproduction.

Dunbar number revisited

Dunbar proved brain evolution happened to allow a more sophisticated social interaction. But the Dunbar number is just a picturesque invention.

Communication is Oxygen we say at Automattic. And it’s true. We become humans through communication and death is nothing but the interruption of any communication..
