During the last years, in the wealthy countries of the First World, communication has become central to all activities, something like the center of the center. In the search for a new societal model, communication forms the core of what has come to be known as the "Information Society." This society sees information as a valuable natural resource and communication as the paradigm for its own organization: the information network serving as connecting circuitry for all of the domains and functions of social life; autorregulation, constant retroaction and transparency of communication enabling convertibility and translatability of all knowledge to the hegemonic code of information (Baudrillard and Lyotard).
