*Prof. Dr. Maximilian Eibl:
*Media. About Media. Media tomorrow. On media tomorrow. On media on tomorrow. Media beyond tomorrow. Tomorrow dominated by media? Letter, book, newspaper, telephone, radio and television have coded and transported information for decades, centuries, millennia without major changes. Their objective and handling was as specific as simple: open, turn on, lift and off we went.
The digitization of the media landscape radically breaks with this tradition. Even the purchase of a TV set is a task for experts. Apart of this intriguing new possibilities are emerging: worldwide communication in real time, access to information from any location, safety, personalized information, and up today unknown technical qualities enable us to a life we donâ€™t want to miss anymore.
The conference addresses topics between these two extreme positions. The question is: Is the development going to overwhelm us, or are the new media going to be an opportunity to us for a self-determined life in freedom? What in fact is our future with media tomorrow and the day after?
