| We found that all the future studies could be classified as ecosphere-as-cause, sociosphere-as-cause, or technosphere-as-cause. Which of those scripts apply in our story. Flirted with socisphere-as-cause in Toynbee's challenge-and-response. Flirted with technosphere-as-cause in Piaget's assimilation-accommodation model. Settled down with person-as-cause - the person is the variable underlying the correlated shifts in the sociosphere and the technosphere. The three shifts are stages in the process of the unfolding of the human potential. Psychology is the basic discipline. All your professors will tell you that their discipline is the basic discipline. They are all wrong!|
THREE INTERFACES OF NEGROPONTE
Let's move in now for the worm's-eye view. Just as The Four Generations of Media (Figure 1) can be considered as an inset in The Three Interfaces of Adam (Figure 2), so The Three Interfaces of Negroponte (Figure 3) could be considered as an inset in Figure 2. [see Figure 5]. Each of those models contain 7 categories, as recommended by George A. Miller in his famous article "The magical number 7 plus or minus 2" [MILLER].
Nicholas Negroponte, the founder of the Media Lab at MIT, got his initial funding by presenting his potential clients with the argument that the computer industry, the print and publishing industry, and the film and tlevision industry are merging into one gigantic industry. An updated version as a Venn rather than a Euler diagram, is presented as Figure 3 (with thanks and apologies to Nic Neg).
