“Media technologies are stacks where layers permit subsequent layers”
As the technology develops and media platforms are constructed, more media platforms can be built on. This process can be visually represented through a stack where each new stack is built off the previous layer.
Example from BCM112 lecture:
So basically in other words (for a simple mind like mine):
(made using Pics Art)
In this stack I’ve constructed each layer allows for the development for the following layer. From the bottom layer of the App Store followed by snapchat, the creation of Snapchat stories, Kylie Jenner’s fame and finally to the top layer of “Kylie Cosmetics”. Now although this is just in my opinion how Kylie got to where she is now, it does show a developmental process in the format of those used for media technology stacks.
