Talk at IIT Bombay : Internet, a perspective & it’s impact on books and print

by rohit on November 4, 2009

Last week I spoke to a Master’s in Design class at IIT Bombay’s Industrial Design Centre. I was invited to give students a big picture view on where we are today with regards to the Internet and,further, reflect on it’s impact on books, print and other media.

This guest talk was part of a Print & Reproduction techniques  course.

Here’s the presentation :The Evolution of the Internet and It’s Impact on Print and Other Media_IDC_IIT Bombay_Oct 29, ’09

IDC is one of the handful of ‘genuine’ design Institutes in the country, well-known for it’s MDes program.

I came away with the impression that IIT Bombay boasts an excellent broadband infrastructure. The students I spoke to said they were into ‘video albums’ (haven’t heard of this before).

There are a few other presentations and documents that  I have online. You can see them here.

Even in this era of digital media some institutes block social media sites and video hosting sites at their premises.

Video could be bandwidth related, bandwidth costs still tend to be high in India, also capacity gets choked soon due to high usage. Social media is a different matter, should not happen at colleges / Institutes, in some offices though this is considered a time waster !
