[Borut Savski] - Spectrum Ecology: Looking from below – Seeing from above

Talk:
Every communication channel is a subsystem of values that provides us with a new (sub)identity - if we happen to be immersed in it. All channels can be regarded as abstract or virtual identities. They define (parallel) worlds of virtual realities. These are what we share. From here on we are part of something bigger (than life). Where and what is the basic individual identity/ reality? The starting point of my approach to Spectrum Ecology is the realization of the large steps that were made by the industry/ providers/ technology into commodifying the use of wireless devices. The widespread use clearly means that there are at the same time psychologic reasons (on/ in one hand) and marketing reasons (on/ in the other hand) for it – a well balanced situation of »demand and supply« relation.
