Technologies of Freedom, the Network Society, and the Culture of Autonomy
We develop four major hypotheses for why mass media might affect fertility. These include economic and time use effects of the medium, effects of ideas on policy actions of members of the elite, general effects on population basic values and fertility—specific cognitions, and effects of deliberate mass media—based interventions on fertility—related behavior. The paper examines correlational and some longitudinal evidence at the cross—national, intranational, and individual levels, as well as the evidence for effects of deliberate interventions. The correlational evidence is consistent with a mass media effect on fertility. However, the evidence about discrete program effects, which reveals short—lived increases in demand for clinic services, is less consistent.
The Internet is the decisive technology of the Information Age, as the electrical engine was the vector of technological transformation of the Industrial Age. This global network of computer networks, largely based nowadays on platforms of wireless communication, provides ubiquitous capacity of multimodal, interactive communication in chosen time, transcending space. The Internet is not really a new technology: its ancestor, the Arpanet, was first deployed in Abbate But it was in the s when it was privatized and released from the control of the U. Department of Commerce that it diffused around the world at extraordinary speed: in the first survey of Internet users counted about 40 million; in they are over 2. Furthermore, for some time the spread of the Internet was limited by the difficulty to lay out land-based telecommunications infrastructure in the emerging countries. This has changed with the explosion of wireless communication in the early twenty-first century.
