Great points! I don’t have citations, but you’ve definitely noticed that I theorized about the medium’s core functionality rather than the medium’s role in society. That’s partly because it’s role in society is evolving, making the functionality the stable phenomenon to reason about. But there might be just as much value in reasoning about how society is embracing this core functionality.
