  • Stephen Robertson (author)
The previous two chapters were about point-to-point or person-to-person messages. The author now talks about messages for broadcasting to a group of people or to the world. The first great invention for broadcasting is the library – the origins of this idea are discussed, as well as its development up to the medieval period. Next comes printing and publishing. Then cinema, radio and television, and the Web.
