Abstract

Media ecology is shown to embrace not only the
study of media but also the study of language, culture and
technology and the interaction of these four domains. It is
demonstrated that language, culture, technology and media
behave like living organisms in that they are emergent
phenomena and that they evolve, propagate their organization
and interact with each other in a media ecosystem. This
model allows us to explore the biological dimension of media
ecology, which it is claimed has been hitherto ignored. It is
shown that both biological and media ecosystems may be
considered as media in themselves and that an ecosystem is
both the medium and the message.
