    printing and its consequences...

      It enabled industrialized marketing and that has doomed us.
      Industrialized marketing becomes more effective as replication and transmission of information becomes more effective and it actively seeks to undercut preservation of information.
      The consumption of marketing material corrupts thought patterns, strings of productive thought terminate in a marketing jingle and the desire to consoom an awful cheeseburger laced with enough sugar to qualify as habit-forming and psychoactive.

      >just in-effect have 90% of your population be illiterate
      We can be just like le Roman Embire XD

      Most of the population is still functionally illiterate.

        When the Gutenberg press was made it was still too expensive for commoners to get a book. The Bible printed costed 1 year of work for a non commoner.

    i just don't understand why it took thousands of years to invent what's basically a big ass stamp

      making the stamp modular (i.e. movable type) is what's important, not the stamp.

      And for that, like with any invention, you need the technological production capability to produce modular types, and the social requirement/incentive to create it.

        they could have made movable type out of wood long before Gutenberg

      The church actively withheld the technology because it would've put all their monks out of business.

      Most people were constantly starving to death and the small elite could just buy handwritten books. Why would anyone go through the trouble of inventing a way to make books available to the poor?

      One of the most revolutionary inventions that basically for better or worse kick started modern era.

      You need to realize that the old system was build to unable any progress. You had 90% of population that could not write and 10% that could write but was mostly just clergy and nobility being on top of it all. The fricking farmer peasant pauper homosexual, his wife and their 20 children were too filthy for education and were busy working on farm.

      When the Gutenberg press was made it was still too expensive for commoners to get a book. The Bible printed costed 1 year of work for a non commoner.

      It still was better and cheaper than some cleric spending their entire life on rewriting one book. And quickly after that people figured out how to connect printing press to steam engine, making printing business go bbbrrrrrrrr and basically flooding the world with cheap printing material.

      The transistor wasn't invented until 1947; expensive telecommunications and effective firearms existed long before that, allowing governments to opress their citizens with ease through monopoly of force (and leading to two world wars). Transistor-based technology brought easy communication options to the masses, and while also used for evil by governments it significantly shifted the power balance towards citizens. If pre-transistor technology had continued developing without transistors or an equivalent invention to make advancements available to the poor, we'd be in a much more dystopian society.

    Beginning of the end, arguably caused the 30 years war. I could have a comfy peasant life, working the land and having 13 kids. But no, I sleep till 12, push a few commits, walk my dog and have no gf.

      The communication, replication and preservation of knowledge progresses non-linearly, since any advancement will aid in its own communication, replication and/or preservation and the access to a larger pool of ideas allows those ideas to be arbitrarily recombined.
      If the means to maintain the knowledge base are limited and knowledge is lost as fast or faster than it is gained, then it will not progress unless acted upon by chance or external force.

    It's the reason we have copyright.

    • 1 month ago

      >As there was initially no copyright law, anyone could buy or rent a press and print any text. Popular new works were immediately re-set and re-published by competitors, so printers needed a constant stream of new material. Fees paid to authors for new works were high, and significantly supplemented the incomes of many academics.[6]
      Not the printing press itself, the common assertion that copyright protects creators is bullshit. It's greedy buttholes getting a monopoly on printing (prior to copyright law) for easier censorship that resulted in copyright law.
