Prophetic Words

    “It is the thesis of this book that society can only be understood through a study of the messages and communications facilities which belong to it; and that in the future development of these messages and communication facilities, messages between man and machines, between machines and men, and between machines and machines, are destined to play an ever-increasing part.”
      —Norbert Wiener, The Human Use of Human Beings: Cybernetics and Society (1950)
