Sense in Communication
October 16, 2003
The demand for text messaging relative to telephony, the amount of time spent participating invirtual worlds or digital games relative to television viewing, and the value of camera phone ser-vices all depend on how persons make sense in communication. Three models for communica-tion are information transfer, storytelling, and presence. While analysis of communication hastended to employ the first two models, the third model provides a better orientation for recogniz-ing and organizing useful knowledge about sensuous choices in communication. Making senseof presence of another like oneself is a good that drives demand for a wide range of communica-tion services. From study of living organisms, artistic masterpieces, and media history, this work documents knowledge about this good. Providing means for persons to make sense of presenceencompasses competition among communication services with different sensory qualities.Competition to support this good offers enduring opportunities to create high industry value.
