Communication and Control

"The present time is the age of communication and control."
(from Cybernetics, 1948)

Norbert Wiener wrote Cybernetics in 1948. Cybernetics, Second Edition 1965 is still available from Amazon.

But what amazes me is the quote is still true now. Some sixty odd years later.

How has the internet changed communication? What barriers still control your communication?

I certainly am, enjoying using various new communications capabilities on the net. This blog is a case in point.
Yet, I find many are hesitant to write their own. Is it fear, or a societal or generational expectation that controls others from not utilising this communication mechanism or others available on the internet?

I’m interested in your thoughts.
