Techno-Prophets Here is a vast set of links to many of the leading figures in media, communications, information theory, AI and A-Life, advanced media technologies etc.

 

 Remember, there is no such thing as ‘the Shannon AND Weaver’ Theory of Communication – only 2 separate papers published one year apart when Weaver offered a clever gloss (re-interpretation) for human communication issues, of Shannon’s ideas about the efficient transmitting of information (coding) in telephone systems:

And here they are…

Shannon's celebrated 1948 Mathematical Theory of Communication  and Warren Weaver’s much used 1949 commentary on Shannon’s work

 

 

Here is a good explanation of how the British government system work – you need to know this sort of thing as general knowledge.
