03. The Progression of the Internet (Within the Context of Sound)

In this post we’ll be exploring how this thing we call the Internet/ WWW began and our interaction with it over the years. A huge question is “When should technology go viral? It’s presence is usually geared towards something of comedic value or something similar to the email forwards of massive amounts of cute kittens and cats literally flipping out to common household objects and other pets. But is there something more to a video or picture “going viral”?

And more importantly, as creators of audio and video, do we have control over that snowball effect of notoriety in online communities?

Also, with if we were to poll the processing power of let’s say 500,000 users who would back a cause or forward the work of a http://www.kickstarter.com project significantly? How would we internally gauge this and turn it into raw usable data so that we could share this with as many people are possible? Well, all of these questions are now the new normal for technological advanced users and even the “smart people” who have been the cause of all the boom of the app market.

Technology and Computers in general have been said to have the shortest lag time in the business world, and conversely – primary education (K through 12th grade) has the slowest lag time when we’re talking about an idea being born and it being implemented within existing curriculum at schools.
