Digital media

Digital media are any media that are encoded in machine-readable formats. Digital media can be created, distributed and preserved on digital electronics devices. Examples of digital media include software, digital images, digital video, video games, web pages and websites, social media, digital data and databases, digital audio such as MP3, electronic books. Digital media contrasts with print media, such as printed books and magazines, other traditional or analog media, such as photographic film, audio tapes or video tapes. Digital media has had a broad and complex impact on society and culture. Combined with the Internet and personal computing, digital media has caused disruptive innovation in publishing, public relations, education and politics. Digital media has posed new challenges to copyright and intellectual property laws, fostering an open content movement in which content creators voluntarily give up some or all of their legal rights to their work; the ubiquity of digital media and its effects on society suggest that we are at the start of a new era in industrial history, called the Information Age leading to a paperless society in which all media are produced and consumed on computers.

However, challenges to a digital transition remain, including outdated copyright laws, the digital divide, the spectre of a digital dark age, in which older media becomes inaccessible to new or upgraded information systems. Digital media has a wide-ranging and complex impact on society and culture. Codes and information by machines were first conceptualized by Charles Babbage in the early 1800s. Babbage imagined that these codes would give him instructions for his Motor of Difference and Analytical Engine, machines that Babbage had designed to solve the problem of error in calculations. Between 1822 and 1823, Ada Lovelace, wrote the first instructions for calculating numbers on Babbage engines. Lovelace's instructions are now believed to be the first computer program. Although the machines were designed to perform analysis tasks, Lovelace anticipated the possible social impact of computers and programming, writing. "For in the distribution and combination of truths and formulas of analysis, which may become easier and more subjected to the mechanical combinations of the engine, the relationships and the nature of many subjects in which science relates in new subjects, more researched...

There are in all extensions of human power or additions to human knowledge, various collateral influences, in addition to the primary and primary object reached. "Other old machine readable media include instructions for pianolas and weaving machines. It is estimated that in the year 1986 less than 1% of the world's media storage capacity was digital and in 2007 it was 94%; the year 2002 is assumed to be the year when human kind was able to store more information in digital than in analog media. Though they used machine-readable media, Babbage's engines, player pianos, jacquard looms and many other early calculating machines were themselves analog computers, with physical, mechanical parts; the first digital media came into existence with the rise of digital computers. Digital computers use binary code and Boolean logic to store and process information, allowing one machine in one configuration to perform many different tasks; the first modern, digital computers, the Manchester Mark 1 and the EDSAC, were independently invented between 1948 and 1949.

Though different in many ways from modern computers, these machines had digital software controlling their logical operations. They were encoded in binary, a system of ones and zeroes that are combined to make hundreds of characters; the 1s and 0s of binary are the "digits" of digital media. In 1959, the metal–oxide–silicon field-effect transistor was invented by Mohamed Atalla and Dawon Kahng at Bell Labs, it was the first compact transistor that could be miniaturised and mass-produced for a wide range of uses. The MOSFET led to the development of microprocessors, memory chips, digital telecommunication circuits; this led to the development of the personal computer in the 1970s, the beginning of the microcomputer revolution and the Digital Revolution. While digital media did not come into common use until the late 20th century, the conceptual foundation of digital media is traced to the work of scientist and engineer Vannevar Bush and his celebrated essay "As We May Think," published in The Atlantic Monthly in 1945.

Bush envisioned a system of devices that could be used to help scientists, doctors and others, store and communicate information. Calling this then-imaginary device a "memex", Bush wrote: The owner of the memex, let us say, is interested in the origin and properties of the bow and arrow, he is studying why the short Turkish bow was superior to the English long bow in the skirmishes of the Crusades. He has dozens of pertinent books and articles in his memex. First he runs through an encyclopedia, finds an interesting but sketchy article, leaves it projected. Next, in a history, he finds another pertinent item, ties the two together, thus he goes. He inserts a comment of his own, either linking it into the main trail or joining it by a side trail to a particular item; when it becomes evident that the elastic properties of available materials had a great deal to do with the bow, he branches off on a side trail which takes him through textbooks on elasticity and tables of physical constants. He inserts a page of longhand analysis of his own.

Thus he builds a trail of hi

Gene B. Glick

Eugene B. Glick was an American builder from Indiana. After returning from serving with the U. S. Army in the European theater during World War II, he and his wife, Marilyn Glick, began constructing housing in the Indianapolis area with other military veterans in mind. Concentrating on building single-family homes and shifting to apartment projects in the 1960s, the Glicks amassed a considerable fortune over their lifetimes, the bulk of which they used for extensive philanthropic endeavors. With more than $142 million in charitable donations to date, the Glicks’ philanthropic impact on the state of Indiana is one of the largest of any family-based organization. Many significant cultural landmarks, civic endeavors and educational entities across the state bear the Glick name. After the deaths of Marilyn Glick in 2012 and Eugene Glick in 2013, oversight of the company and philanthropic activities has remained under the control of their children and other family members. Eugene Biccard Glick was born in Indianapolis on August 29, 1921, the eldest son of Reuben and Faye Biccard Glick.

The family was Jewish of German ancestry. His younger brother, died of spinal meningitis in 1937. Gene attended Shortridge High School at the same time as author Kurt Vonnegut. While attending Indiana University, he operated a charter bus service for students. After graduating from IU in December 1942 with a bachelor’s degree in business, Glick enlisted in the U. S. Army. Glick served as an infantry combat instructor until June 1944, he soon requested a transfer to the French front, joined the 179th Regiment of the 45th Infantry Division. His fluency in German led to him serving as an interrogator for Army scouts, he was nearly killed during the Battle of the Bulge, which affected his outlook on life. In his book Born to Build, Glick recounted that on November 11, 1944, he huddled under cover during an intense artillery barrage for hours, promised himself that if he survived he would always look back on that day as a lesson to never lose hope. Glick and his unit liberated the Dachau concentration camp.

He helped document the atrocities of the Holocaust. While serving in the war, Glick received the European Theater medal, the Combat Infantryman Badge and the Bronze Star. Glick’s wartime experiences led to him being featured in Tom Brokaw’s best-selling book, The Greatest Generation, as well as contemporaneous television broadcasts hosted by Tom Brokaw and Matt Lauer. Upon returning to Indianapolis after mustering out, Glick founded the G. I. loans department at People’s Bank. Glick married Marilyn Koffman in 1947, together they began building single family homes in Indianapolis, an enterprise that became the Gene B. Glick Company; the couple had four daughters: Arlene Grande, Alice Meshbane and Lynda Schwartz. The Glicks raised their family in the Indianapolis area and continued to reside there for the rest of their lives. In 1982, they created the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Family Foundation and began to devote more of their time and wealth to charitable causes, they remained active in the Indianapolis Jewish community as members of the Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation, were patrons of the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis, whose community center is named after Glick’s brother, Arthur.

Gene Glick died on October 2, 2013 at the age of 92. The Gene B. Glick Company is a multifamily housing development and property management company founded by Gene Glick in 1947. Based in Indianapolis, Indiana, it is one of the largest owned firms in the apartment industry within the state and nationwide; as of 2017 it owns and operates properties in 12 states, with more than 20,000 apartment units and 7,000 employees. Glick started the company known as Indianapolis Homes Inc. building single family houses on the Eastside of Indianapolis using money he saved while serving in the Army, as well as savings of his wife, Marilyn.

During the 1950s the company became a leading franchisee of National Homes, expanding from building single homes to entire subdivisions. By 1962, the company had changed its name to the Gene B. Glick Company and was generating more than $1 million in sales annually. In this same year, the company built Williamsburg East.

The business changed its focus from single family houses to multifamily communities, with an emphasis on creating affordable homes for low-income families using federal Section 8 funding. By 1968, the Gene B. Glick Company had shifted its business model to building and managing apartment buildings. From the late 1960s to the 1980s, the company expanded from Indiana to Ohio, Georgia, Minnesota, New York, Virginia and Illinois. By the 2000s, Gene and Marilyn Glick became focused on their philanthropic endeavors, turning over more of the daily operations to their children and grandchildren.
