Bias of communication

Harold Innis (non-Marxist)

Each form of communication involves a bias in its handling of time and space
Oral communication is time-based (i.e. in pre-literate societies?)
Communications affect rise and decline of cultural traits
Heavy, durable medium disseminates knowledge better over time than over space
