2-      The government, the business sector and the individual users of the communication technologies have been trying to get in charge of the media and the message throughout the history. Do we need a controlling system over the media? If so, who should be in charge managing this important responsibility?


3-      After the Titanic incident, a chaos of wireless communication took place. What happens if a disaster occurs in the present? Ref. Cowan – A Social History of American Technology
